Seaming Paint Rollers with the Merrow High Pile Machine

In case you were wondering how paint rollers get their shape, they're sewn into tubes by Merrow machines. The Merrow 70-D3B-2 HP is a Merrow butted seam machine that is used to join the edges of the material, creating the tube that then slides onto the roller. The 70-D3B-2 HP (for high pile) is specifically set up to handle thicker material and can be mounted to a automated railway, making it perfect for difficult, high volume applications such as this.
