Most rubber and steel rollers require a smooth finish, but some applications require specialty finishes. For example, web converting often utilizes grooves for air entrapment relief and anti-wrinkling. The steel industry uses grooves for oil porting, and custom profiles such as crepe finishes for increased grip. A V-groove profile is commonly used in bar feed applications.
