The Hi Roller is a true innovation in slab making equipment for the ceramics industry. The vertical orientation is an obvious space-saving breakthrough but it is the less apparent elements of this design, which truly makes the Hi Roller a pleasure to use.
INNOVATIVE SLAB FORMING – The clay is pulled down between two free-wheeling idler rollers. Even pressure distribution on both sides of the slab as it is formed, equalizing pressure applied as it is ejected just what you have strived for with just one pass.
FAST – Use the “once and done” technique for slab making because pressure is equally applied to both sides of your slab.
CONVENIENT – Close at hand but not taking up space which could be put to better use.
INTEGRATED CANVAS – Always with your machine, always ready, always perfectly aligned.
SIMPLE OPERATION – Simple controls with ergonomic design make operation intuitive.
DURABILITY– Welded, powder coated steel frame. "Potter tough" steel components, all self lubricating bearing construction for smooth, low maintenance operation.
SYNCHRONIZED THICKNESS – Twirl one adjuster and you are ready to roll. No more binding, jamming or doing laps from one side to the other.
AMBIDEXTROUS CONTROLS – Handle and quick stop pedal/drivelock can be mounted on either side of the machine to fit with your dominant hand or unique spacial requirements.
ADAPTABLE – Easily switch between several clay bodies. Use extra canvases and send clay through in a canvas "sling." For tile applications use Slab-Mat to keep your slab rigid during transport.
Wall mount & Floor mount
Not quite twelve inches is all it takes. Use the wall mount included with the Hi Roller and mount on any interior stud or masonry wall. The demi feet have levelers to raise the roller off the floor and help with getting the unit plumb. The 35” wide Hi Roller is 10 inches thick, add our beefy 1 5/8 inch wall mount and you are ready!
Got five square feet of space? That is all you need! The floor mounts included with the Hi Roller are 31.5 inches long. The roller is stable and ready for service! Additional floor anchoring may be incorporated at installation if desired.
