Softball - Baseball Heated Bat Rolling Services
Most companies determine the maximum 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). Our Parallel Progressive Compression Technique takes longer than those charging less than us but we want you to be happy so we don't cut corners. We also Pre Heat all bats prior to rolling. This process will benefit our customers with big barrel baseball bats and those of you with newer baseball and softball bats. We envision as things progress over the next years you will see many more manufactures developing new composite designs that will make pre heating a requirement. What we've found is that most of the newer bats respond better after pre heating. Using previous methods you would reach a substantial amount of compression on your 3rd or 4th compression setting. Most of these 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 prevents the unraveling of the composite material that can potentially be an issue with the older rolling techniques. Overall you will achieve MUCH better results with your new bats that are being manufactured using the new processes and materials.
Why should I roll my bat?
Your Softball or Baseball bat is placed between two or three rollers made of Nylon, Delrin or more durable material (similar to material used on our Panther 750 and Xtreme) of a Bat Rolling Machine and then pressure is applied. When the barrel rotates within these rollers the carbon fiber material is stretched out and the resin (glue) binding the layers together is broken down. The same thing happens with aluminum bats except it's the aluminum material becoming a little more flexible. Aluminum bats gain on average 10-20 feet of distance as compared to 20-40 feet with composite. This is the same thing that happens as you take hours of batting practice or put game hits. This naturally causes the layers of composite or aluminum to become more flexible which greatly improves the trampoline effect. This trampoline effect is what produces the batted ball speed and distance. Typical distance increases range from 20-40ft and It will also widen the sweet spot of the bat which will make you a more consistent hitter.
Heated Bat Rolling Details
We had been experimenting with Heated Bat Rolling for several years and never really found too much benefit with the process. With the increased need for pre heating to get the newer 2012-2013 bats to properly respond to the rolling process we decided it was necessary to revisit the heating process and see if there were any new benefits. What we found was that with the new designs used in most Baseball bats that by pre heating these bats prior to rolling we were seeing much better results. The thicker walls and different composite makeup has made rolling these bats a challenge. It is very difficult to get the walls to flex enough to get them to break in thoroughly. By heating these bats first we found it much easier and in fact we are seeing distance increases closer to that earlier models. In addition to new Adult baseball bats, we are finding that most manufacturers are now changing the design of the newer Slowpitch Softball bats. They are using less durable paint and they are also using a new spiral wrap design that causes bats to actually unravel as they exceed the designed performance levels. By heating your bat before rolling then you virtually eliminate this issue.
Will rolling my bat shorten it's life?
Very minimal, when we finish rolling your bat it will have virtually the same durability it did before rolling. It will however be performing at its highest level of performance.
How will rolling effect a bat that already been rolled?
Even bats that have been used will benefit from our processes. We get bats in every week that have 300-400 hits on them and after we get the bats back to the owner they are very surprised with the results.
What type of bats can be rolled?
Any composite or aluminum bat can be rolled to increase the performance. This includes Softball bats (Fastpitch or Slowpitch) and Adult, Senior League, Youth Baseball bats (2 1/4", 2 5/8"and 2 3/4" barrels). Aluminum bats can be rolled but the performance increases are less than composite bats. Aluminum bats typically increase about 10-20ft after bat rolling.
