Case Study: The Building of a Roller Slide

The Customer Allis Roller was asked by a national playground manufacturer to develop rollers for their proprietary Roller Slide design. This customer chose Allis Roller because of their location in Wisconsin and willingness to collaborate with their own engineers in creating rollers for an outdoor playground application. Though roller slides are not new to the playground equipment

Outsourced Assembly Work Can Transform Your ROI

No manufacturer expects to hear that making their assembly work operation someone else’s responsibility is a good thing, but the reality might surprise you. Outsourcing assembly work to your machined parts manufacturer is the most convenient and cost effective strategy for ensuring that high quality, installation-ready parts are efficiently incorporated into your products. That may

Submerged Arc Welding: Technology That Gets Better With Age

Manufacturing technology today is worlds away from the techniques and processes used in the early part of the 20th century. However, in the case of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW), a uniquely safe and consistent welding method that’s been in use since the 1930s, new technology hasn’t reduced its relevance to machined parts manufacturing. As a

Superior Shafts Require a Superior Process

Simple parts make even the most advanced modern equipment possible, and shafts are one of those vital components. However, not all shafts are created equal and the quality of a shaft depends on the skill of the machinist and the manufacturing process of the part. At Allis Roller, we specialize in complex machined parts, and
