English term or phrase:to offset
While many other rollers (Heizwalzen) offset or wear prematurely, Katun Performance rollers maintain consistent, uniform heat transfer across their surface, delivering superior performance and life.
Explanation: Little more than a guess, as you see, but it may be heading in the right direction. If I were you, I'd ask the customer to define "offset" in this context - it looks like a jargon word, and I can't find it myself with any other, more suitable, meaning.
