ML6 High-Quality Polyurethane Products for Glass Fabrication Systems
ML6 PRECISION POLYURETHANE SOLUTIONS DELIVER UNMATCHED QUALITY AND FRICTION
Meridian Laboratory’s ML6 precision polyurethane products supercharge drives, brakes and idlers for glass shops, glazing contractors, millworks, and mirror fabricators. The ML6 process has been specifically engineered for industrial applications, with over 55 years of working with the world’s top manufacturers and brands.
Meridian Laboratory has a long history of success with this industry, because ML6 consistently exceeds the demanding quality specifications that glass fabricators require. Here’s a case where an international manufacturer of glass fabrication systems relied on ML6 to deliver quality and precision. Consistency was essential, and only ML6 was able to deliver long-lasting, reliable rollers that their machines required.
For over 20 years, this manufacturer continues to trust Meridian Laboratory to deliver quality, high-friction rollers:
“Regardless of volumes, Meridian Laboratory is outstanding on delivering parts on time. This combined with their consistently excellent quality is why Meridian Laboratory remains a key supplier to our production and manufacturing operations. “– Client.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRECISION ROLLERS FOR GLASS FABRICATION SYSTEMS
While it’s easy to think “it’s just a roller”, it’s even easier to lose sight of how much you ask of your rollers and wheels, day in and day out. Keeping your operations running with a minimum of downtime for machine repairs, feed jams, or other time wasters (and money costers) means upgrading to superior components for your application. If you expect, and demand that your equipment do more, ML6 offers a proven upgrade you’ll notice immediately.
Take a look at the short video below to see one (of many) very simple reasons a more durable, precision roller can have a huge impact on your manufacturing environment.

So many similar companies continue to rely on Meridian Laboratory because of the nature of ML6, which is specifically designed for use high-friction situations where exceptional durability is necessary.
- ML6 has a superior total indicated runout of 0.001” versus the average 0.005”-0.015” of competitor rollers
- Does not mark or contaminate
- -40°F to 200°F operating temperature range
- Hardness of 40 Shore A to 65 Shore D
Meridian Laboratory has made improvements to the friction output of conventional rollers, by molding, not grinding, the outer surface of ML6 polyurethane rollers. Not grinding the outside surface also has the added benefit of improving the life of the rollers, because grinding tends to open the grain of plastic compounds, causing a much steeper rate of degradation.

I am a plant support welding engineer and found these guys through a google search. I reached out and quickly received technical support with specking out the proper rotary ground and direction on making modifications on my automated rotating … More welding application. We were burning up bearings and replacing them every 3 months. After installing the rotary grounds, lathes have been running for close to a year with no need for calibration or bearing replacement. The payback is less than 8 months and will annually save $35K in bearings, downtime for lathe calibration and bearing greasing.
Again, the technical support was critical and the guys are easy to work with.

We purchased 16 of the Rotocon MC500 Rotary Ground Assemblies. Your product is amazing, they work great and are rolling 20 hours a day still just fine. We have had them in service since December of 2019 and they have been absolutely bullet … More proof. This was the perfect solution to our power transfer problem.

During my research for a team design project at my school I found Meridian Labs through a google search. We were trying to hunt down a slip ring that transfers power efficiently and can withstand high rpms. I came across their ROTOCON line. … More I called in and spoke with Adam E in sales. Being a self funded college team, our budget is limited. Adam was able to help us source the correct slip ring for our application and offered it to us at a price point which helped us stay under budget. I'm looking forward to utilizing the ring in our final design and I will add photos then.
