The quality, precision and innovation packed into the production of rollers for the packaging, converting and printing sectors has now taken a leap forward with engineering specialists Hone-All Precision entering the marketplace. The Leighton Buzzard subcontract manufacturing specialists recently acquired two divisions of A.T Roberts Ltd; a company that has been producing rollers, cylinders, shafts and precision roller tubes for the print, packaging and converting sectors for decades.

As the yardstick that the UK's subcontract manufacturing industry measures itself by, Hone-All has been supplying A.T Roberts for over 20 years with bespoke steel and aluminium rollers manufactured to the exact demands of the end user. As part of the acquisition, Hone-All has taken ownership of A.T Robert plant and staff expertise to underpin the subcontractors growth ambitions.

For OEM print and packaging machinery manufacturers that are unfamiliar with Hone-All, it is a specialist provider of Deep Hole Boring, Deep Hole Drilling, Gun drilling, CNC Turning and CNC Honing services up to a maximum of 4 metres in length. The company also specialises in precision and thin wall tube manufacture, which is a key area for the print sector. This extensive expertise ensures that existing A.T Roberts customers will benefit from enhanced customer service levels and manufacturing excellence that Hone-All is renowned for throughout high-tech industries such as the aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, F1 and medical sectors.

For tier 1 & 2 and the subcontract print, packaging and converting markets, Hone-All has set up a subcontract service for balancing and straightening existing rollers that may be worn or out of balance. By taking delivery of two specialised machines, a dynamic balancing machine and a straightening press from A.T Roberts, Hone-All has positioned itself as an industry leading subcontract supplier of shaft straightening and balancing for the print and packaging industry. So, for print, packaging and converting companies looking for a high quality service that will get your machines back to efficient production with minimal downtime, Hone-All offers a fast turnaround roller 'servicing' package that will precisely straighten, balance and even coat your rollers to an 'as-new' condition.

By diversifying into the provision of a subcontract dynamic balancing and straightening service, Hone-All Precision has noted a significant uptake for the service from industry sectors such as the automotive and rotor industries. This is because Hone-All is renowned for its quality, service and customer support and this reputation has immediately resulted in the company winning business from a range of industries. However, the key focus for Hone-All with these machines is the print & packaging sectors and the subcontractor would be delighted to demonstrate its services to interested companies.
