A core product of Union Electric Åkers Thousands of Hot Strip Mill Work Rolls come off of our production lines each year, making Union Electric Åkers one of the world’s largest roll manufacturers of Hot Strip Mill Work Rolls. All our Hot Strip Mill Work Rolls are made using the vertical centrifugal casting method, ensuring high in-service integrity and premium performance results.
Primetals Technologies have been a pioneer in the field ever since we developed the world's first Work Roll Shift Mill and have enhanced this technology based on our extensive experience in steel industry. Primetals Technologies utilizes the Work Roll Shifting at hot strip rolling field for different two purposes: Dispersion of wear of work roll
The Hot Rolling Process The primary function of the Hot Strip Mill is to reheat semi-finished steel slabs of steel nearly to their melting point, then roll them thinner and longer through 12 successive rolling mill stands driven by motors totaling 77,000 hp, and finally coiling up the lengthened steel sheet for transport to the next process.
“Frequently Asked Questions about Hot Strip Mill Work Roll Surface” (wear, oxidation, firecracks, sticking and fiction) This was originally presented at the WMSP, New Orleans, 2004. Dr. Karl Heinrich Schroeder With British Rollmakers (China) Ltd. Keywords: rolls
SMS DEMAG Hot Strip Mills 10 The drum-type shear installed between the roughing and finishing mills of a hot strip mill crops the trans-fer bar at its head and tail. In special applications, the drum-type shear also serves to divide transfer bars and finished plates. Based on the experience gained from more than 60 drum-type shears built so far,
Work rolls in hot strip mills wear due to friction between the roll surface and hot strip. (Back-up rolls wear as well, but under pressure with elastic deformation, the friction is much less, except for the high work roll roughness in the last stand of a sheet rolling tandem cold mill). The wear is uneven from one end of the barrel to the other
The main requirements of a work roll in hot strip mill are as follows: mechanical resistance, wear resistance, thermal fatigue and oxidation resistance, and adhesion resistance. In order to evaluate rolls surface degradation during process applications, studies are carried out with the purpose
In hot rolling mills, premature failure of rolls is a major concern as it adversely affects the mill operation as well as production. Analysis of failed roll materials and actual rolling conditions in service are therefore necessary to understand the roll failure mechanism and thereby improve the wear resistance and extend the service life of rolls.
Secondary scale on hot strip and the impact on wear is another issue. Stresses from Hertzian pressure in 4-high cold mill back up rolls were measured years ago, the results were never published, but of high interest also, maybe later. K. H. Schröder July 2003 K. H. Schröder: A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE MECHANICS OF ROLLING MILL ROLLS
You'll appreciate X-Roll ® hot strip mills from SMS group as all-round plants for high-quality hot strip. They are designed to produce flat steel from thin strip with a minimum final gauge of 1.2 millimeters to high-strength pipe steels up to 25.4 millimeters thick, including stainless steel grades.
These backup rolls are larger and contact the back side of the smaller rolls. A four-high mill has four rolls, two small and two large. A cluster mill has more than 4 rolls, usually in three tiers. These types of mills are commonly used to hot roll wide plates, most cold rolling applications, and to roll foils.
This invention relates generally to rolling t mills and, particularly, to a wiper and stripper s guide therefor. c In the operation of hot strip mills, it is neces- p sary to cool the work rolls by water sprays but it is desirable to prevent the flooding of the work- £ piece by the sprays directed onto the rolls.
