Types Of Rolling Mills

It has been suggested that Leonardo Da Vinci invented the first rolling mill, but what exactly is a rolling mill?  Rolling mills are units in which a metal forming process takes place. During this process various metal materials get passed through a massive pair of rolls, or material handling equipment.

The term “rolling” is categorized by the temperature at which the metal gets rolled. Should the temperature of the metal be above that at which it can recrystallize, the process is known as “hot rolling.” Conversely, should the temperature used be below its recrystallization temperature, and then the process is called “cold rolling”.

A rolling mill can also be known as a reduction mill, or just simply, a mill. Rolling mills have a common construction regardless of which kind of rolling is being performed. In a previous article, we discussed the uses of a rolling mills.

Rolling mills are a system of machines for deforming metal into rotary rolls and performing auxiliary operations such transportation of stock to rolls, disposal after rolling, cutting, melting, piling or coiling.  A set of rolls in their housing is called a ‘stand’.  Rolling mills are classified according to the number of rolls in the working stand and the arrangement of the stand.
