Downstream - Rolling mills

Adapting to new demands

Hot and cold rolling mills are under pressure to increase output while maintaining, or even improving product quality. Doing so generally means adapting equipment for higher loads or reconfiguring mill stands – an extremely costly proposition.

In either case, the process control features involved result in tougher working conditions and maintenance requirements for bearing arrangements. Operational safety and environmental legislation are additional challenges.
