TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd. manufactures and sells various types of non-woven fabric rolls as pillars. The non-woven fabric roll was developed by TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd. in 1966 (Showa 41) in order to respond to the speeding up of rolls on various production lines ahead of the rest of the world.
Non-woven fabric rolls are manufactured by laminating, pressurizing, and molding non-woven fabrics. Non-woven fabric is made into cloth by adhering or entwining fibers by heat, mechanical or chemical methods.
Utilizing the porosity of the non-woven fabric when the roll rotates, compression (blocking / discharging) and opening (absorption / suction) are repeated, and at that time, the suction / exhaust effect is excellent so that moisture is absorbed by the sponge. Is the feature of the non-woven fabric roll. It is mainly used in various production lines such as anti-slip measures, drawing rolls, coating rolls, and control rolls.
Specific examples of use include oil in metal processing lines such as steel, special steel, aluminum, and copper brazing, drawing rolls for water and chemicals, coating (anointing) rolls, control rolls, and automobile (body) production lines. These include drawing rolls for oil, control rolls, and control rolls for film and fiber processing lines. Control rolls are used in a variety of applications such as tensions, pinches, feeds, tables and various guides.
The remarkable property of the non-woven fabric roll is that it has a very high coefficient of friction compared to conventional rubber rolls, etc., and the hydroplaning phenomenon (steel sheet) that causes the steel sheet to meander during line transportation of wet steel sheet at high speed. A phenomenon in which a liquid film such as oil is formed between the roll and the roll, which makes control ineffective) or slip does not occur, enabling high-speed operation, suppressing the occurrence of defective products due to slip scratches and breakage, and improving yield. I am contributing. Other characteristics include high squeezing property with excellent squeezing (wiping / damming) effect of water, oil, etc., product protection that prevents roll scratches from being transferred to the product, and excellent elasticity and abrasion resistance that are optimal for scratch transfer countermeasures. There is edge property.
We prepare a large number of types of non-woven fabrics that are rich in originality according to customer’s request, and develop manufacturing with reliable proposal power from selection of appropriate non-woven fabrics to roll design and manufacturing according to usage conditions.
In addition to non-woven fabric rolls, TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd. also manufactures grinding buffs (TOHO SUPER BUFF), high-performance special rolls (Biwako roll), brush rolls, rubber (urethane) rolls, etc.
Grinding buff is a non-woven polishing material that combines a polishing material with a non-woven material, and can handle polishing and grinding of metal products such as cleaning, scratching, deburring, and finishing. There are sheet-shaped, roll-shaped, and disc-shaped ones.
Biwacoroll is a non-woven fabric roll formed by pressurizing a non-woven fabric made of various high-performance fibers (aramid / PBO) wound in a spiral shape, and achieves excellent heat resistance (operating temperature range: 250 ° C to 400 ° C) and high wear resistance. doing. Demand is increasing in the steel industry with proposals that take advantage of the characteristics of non-woven fabrics, which is TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd.’s strength, and we are proceeding with further application development.
The non-woven fabric roll developed by TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd. meets the various uses of manufacturers of steel, non-ferrous metals, automobiles, etc. around the world. With the overseas expansion of overseas manufacturers and Japanese manufacturers, we are building and promoting a global network that responds to the ever-changing environment for manufacturing, such as local roll design, production, and technical services.
Based on TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd.’s basic technology, non-woven fabric roll design technology and molding technology, we have technical guidance from six licensees in the United States, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and China, as well as marketing as an excellent partner. By supporting the productivity improvement of overseas bases in the role of the mother factory, TOHO YOGYO CO., Ltd. will further enhance the global system to realize optimal procurement, optimal production, and optimal supply, and will continue to provide what the times demand. We will continue to take on the challenges of becoming.
