Curler Rings, Segments & Large
Profile Precision Tooling

Longer Service Life

Apex materials, processes and designs are all focused on providing high performance and long service life.

Curler tooling is manufactured from AISI D2 tool steel which is fully hardened. All curler ring grooves are ground with single-point, diamond-dressed wheels for optimum finish. The net result is a tool that will reliably hold its geometry for long, trouble-free operation.

The design of Apex curler rings also contributes to exceptional service life. Typically, both ring and segment are designed with two identical grooves, although only one groove at a time is used; when significant wear is detected, the tooling can easily be inverted so that the second groove can be utilized.
