In addition to manufacturing the finest quality bat rolling machines we also offer Heated Bat Rolling
Services for those not ready to
start rolling their own bats. We've taken our 14+ years experience and have developed unique heating and rolling processes to produce the maximum allowable
performance levels for your composite/aluminum baseball and softball bats. Typical improvements are in the 10-35ft range simply from rolling. Many already
know that as bats gets more and more hits on them they start to perform better. Our Heated Bat Rolling Services will eliminate the need to
wait for your bat to perform. Get it rolled and allow it to perform at its maximum level right away. Our bat rolling service is like putting 500-700 hits
on your bat without all the wear and tear.
Heated Bat Rolling
Most companies will determine the maximum rolling pressure and start at that pressure. This is totally incorrect and usually causes durability
problems and also potentially causes your paint to spider web or dent prematurely. We have elected to roll most bats at 5-6 progressive compression
points (depending on the type of bat). After we've rolled your bat it will have
400+ rotations through the machine (in some cases your bat will require more passes).
Parallel Progressive Compression Rolling takes longer than those charging less than us. We also Pre-Heat all bats prior to Bat
Rolling. This process
will benefit our customers receive the highest allowable performance levels on their baseball and softball bats. We envision over the few next years
you will see many more manufactures developing new composite designs that will make heated rolling a requirement.
In 2018 USA Baseball is implementing a new performance standard. We
also envision this new performance standard will increase your need
for Bat Rolling to get more performance out of your baseball bats.
Softball associations usually follow suit so look for within to the
softball community as well.
Using previous non heated rolling methods you would reach a
substantial amount of compression on your 3rd or 4th compression
setting. Most new bats will actually benefit from using a moderate
amount of compression with more Parallel rotations. In previous
parallel rolling processes most companies would but 10-20 complete
rotations on your bat at each compression setting. What is actually
working best now is to increase the amount of complete rotation to
50+ rotations at the moderate setting. This will avoid premature
breakage from over compression. When you combine this with the Pre
Heating you see much better overall performance increase on these
newer bats. It also will protect you from your bat from the
unraveling of the composite material that are issues with the older
rolling styles. Overall you will achieve substantially better results with your new bats that are
manufactured using the new composite designs.
