AMES Direct Blog


AMES Direct are proud to have recently relined these Rollers used in Transmission Cable installations. This wheel is a SPP-1B-610-UL (710mm OD) used to string power cables.

These Rollers are imported from the US with a poor quality urethane lining not UV Rated. After exposed to the harsh environments in Australia the OEM urethane breaks down and creates issues whilst stringing. We were approached by our customer with rollers requiring refurbishment.

AMES Direct have developed a highly cost effective solution so the original wheel is kept and is relined with a UV Stable Premium Grade Polyurethane and will outlast the previous urethane lining multiple times. Resolving what was needing replacing and keeping the solid alloy cast wheel, our customer now has a premium high performance product.

We look forward to hearing how these perform because as far as we are aware, this is the first time a Transmission Roller has been successfully relined in Australia! If you work in the Industry or know some who does please take the time to enquire further on The Rubber Roller & Component Specialists Solution to save thousands!

At AMES Direct we continue the roller recovering and manufacturing service that has been offered for over 75 years. We are committed to understanding your requirements, suggest a solution and work with you to bring about the desired result. The solution to your needs is our priority.
