Rolling mill rolls usage specifications

Table of Contents

The Rolling mill rolls is the main component of the rolling mill. The size, structure, material, use and maintenance of the rolls for rolling mill determine the technical level of the rolling mill to a considerable extent. Steel mill rolls are not only an important part of rolling mill design, but also the main management object of organized production. Therefore, establishing a reasonable mill roll usage system is particularly important to improve the service life of rolling mills.

Selection of rolling mill rolls material

1. Material type

The material type of the rolling mill rolls determines its mechanical properties and service life. Common mill roll materials include cast iron, cast steel, forged steel, alloy steel, etc. According to different use environments and processing needs, choosing the appropriate material type is the key.

2. Hardness requirements

The rolling mill rolls hardness has an important impact on its wear resistance and fatigue strength. Too high a hardness may cause the roll to become brittle, while too low a hardness may cause the steel rolling mill rolls to wear easily. The appropriate hardness range should be selected according to the requirements of the rolling process and the purpose of the mill roll.

3. Wear resistance

Wear resistance is an important performance indicator of rolling mill rolls, which directly affects the service life and production efficiency of rolls. When selecting the rolling mill rolls material, its wear resistance should be considered, and materials with higher wear resistance should be given priority.

4. Heat resistance

Mill rolls work in high-speed rotation and high-temperature environments, so heat resistance is an important consideration for Rolling mill rolls materials. Materials with good heat resistance should be selected to avoid roll deformation or damage at high temperatures.

5. Fatigue resistance

Mill rolls are prone to fatigue fracture under the action of alternating stress. Therefore, choosing materials with high fatigue resistance is crucial to ensure the reliability and service life of the mill rolls.

6. Corrosion resistance

Some steel mill rolls work in corrosive environments, so materials with good corrosion resistance should be selected to extend the service life of the mill rolls and ensure the stability of the production process.

7. Economical

On the premise of meeting performance requirements, the economics of the roll should be considered. Choosing affordable materials can reduce production costs and improve economic benefits.

8. Processability

Finally, the workability of the roll should be considered. Easy-to-process materials can reduce manufacturing difficulty, shorten production cycles, and reduce manufacturing costs. At the same time, good processability also helps ensure the quality and accuracy of the mill rolls.

1. Storage and custody

Rolling mill rolls should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight and moisture.

It is forbidden to stack the steel mill rolls to avoid deformation or damage of the rolls.

Check the mill rolls regularly to ensure they are free from damage, rust and deformation.

2. Collection and distribution

To receive mill rolls, you must fill out a purchase form, indicating the department, purpose, quantity and other information.

When issuing rolling mill rolls, the specifications and models should be checked to ensure they are consistent with production needs.

Registration should be carried out after issuance to ensure that the use of the steel mill rolls can be traced.

3. Usage specifications

The surface quality of the mill roll should be checked before use. If there is any damage or defect, it should be dealt with or replaced in time.

When using the mill rolls, parameters such as pressure, temperature and speed should be adjusted according to process requirements to ensure product quality.

During use, the operation of the rolling mill rolls should be observed at any time, and any abnormalities should be dealt with promptly.

4. Maintenance and maintenance

The steel mill rolls should be cleaned after use to remove residue and dirt.

Apply lubricant as needed to reduce wear and extend service life.

The rolling mill rolls should be inspected and repaired regularly to ensure stable performance.

5. Scrapping and disposal

Rolling mill rolls that cannot be repaired or have no use value should be scrapped.

Scrapped rolling mill rolls should be stored uniformly and disposed of regularly.

Rolls made of special materials should be scrapped in accordance with relevant regulations.

6. Quality inspection and monitoring

Newly purchased rolls should be inspected for quality to ensure they meet the requirements.

The performance of the rolling mill rolls during use should be tested regularly to ensure stable performance.

Monitor the use of rolls, analyze the causes of abnormalities, and take measures to prevent similar problems from happening again.

7. Accident handling and prevention

Once a roll accident occurs, it should be stopped immediately, inspected and dealt with.

Analyze the cause of the accident and take measures to prevent similar accidents from happening again.

Strengthen employee safety training and improve employee safety awareness.

8. Usage records and files

Record the receipt, use and maintenance of rolls and establish files.

Records should be complete, accurate, and convenient for query and management.
