Rubber Manufacturing Blog / Equipment / Boling 60X20 Mill Training
Posted:  16 Dec 2014 00:18
We recently bought a Boling 60X20 Mill at an auction, and are almost done doing all the necessary repairs to make sure the machine is safe to operate.

Does anyone know of a Consultation firm in Houston that can provide training to our operators on how to operate the machine, and what to do in case of an emergency?

Maria,
1. ARPM or RMA has a mill safety video which provides the basic steps for a mill extraction.  If you have someone in the Akron area, we would be happy to perform a mill extraction drill.  We have (2) 60" mills.
2.  Rubber City Machinery: Bob Westfall 330-434-3500 is very experienced with mills and safeties.  He may be able to help.
3. Akron University: Tayba Lynne Tahir 330-972-8661, tahir@uakron.edu.  We have used them a few times to train and qualify operators on lab mills which can be very dangerous due to the small roll diameter.

Hope this helps.
