2 High Rolling Mill

Rolling mills consisting of two rolls or known as a 2 High rolling mill is used for anything from temper pass to breakdown of material. The 2 High rolling mill typically have larger diameter work rolls that are positioned with actuators that either have:

  • Hydraulic
  • Pneumatic
  • Electro-mechanical

Element’s 2 high rolling mill incorporate design considerations to counteract the roll bending stresses present when reducing material. These designs can range from simple crowning of work rolls to counter-bending roll shape controls.

2 High Rolling Mill Equipment Options

With any Element Rolling mill, we offer several options that are available to increase the productivity of your equipment. Some of the options that we offer to maximize the capacity of our mills include:

  • Quick roll change out options
  • Repetitive reduction schedules
  • Automatic gauge control features

Element mills offer a wide range of feed back options for roll positioning that provide tight output tolerances. Our most accurate design incorporates non contact positive roll detection that can provide output to tolerances of better than +/-0.0001″ (+/- 4um).

Rolling mills can have multiple different configurations that are used depending on material type, thickness and yield strengths. Element has built a wide variety of rolling mills to fit multiple applications.
