DIE KALANDERWALZENFABRIK HILGER GMBH & CO. KG • THE GERMAN CALENDER ROLL COMPANY
The KWF Hilger GmbH & Co. KG is a world-leading supplier of high-quality calendering rolls for the paper, embossing and textile industries. Our craftsmanship and precision, combined with our desire for innovation, has enabled us to attract and retain the leading paper and textile companies, as well as the calender manufacturers, around the world.
In order to expand our product portfolio, KWF and Richard Hough Ltd. entered into a technology transfer agreement at the end of 2018. This has allowed us to increase our product offering to include the Automotive industry as well as producing Non-woven rolls for Metal finishing. RHL´s leading technical staff are now employed at the KWF workshop in Germany and Mr. Anthony Ashton is advising.
Roberto™, Robertex™, Nollap™, Super Elastic™, Syncast™ and Simtex™ are now part of our product portfolio. KWF rolls have always represented quality and longevity, and have withstood even in the harshest production environments. Our long-term customer relationships are a true testament to our consistently high standard of work.
Developed by RHL and KWF Hilger, Simtex™ is a new roll cover used for paper and textile calendering, as well as for high speed embossing. It consists of a special formulation of synthetic fibres and is able to withstand 250˚Celsius maximum surface temperature.
