Casting Rolling Mill

Casting rolling mill is used for continuous roll casting of material strip. Casting rolling mill is typically 2 high hot mills capable of providing consistent thickness strip from hot cast incoming material. This process of reducing material to the desired thickness while still hot allows for the most efficient production of desired strip output due to the reduced energy to work material. The benefits of utilizing a casting rolling mill are as follows:

  • Reduced energy required to reduce hot material
  • Larger reductions from cast strip to output thickness are possible
  • Can remove the need of additional coil to coil processing

Casting Rolling Mill Equipment Options

With any Element Rolling mills, 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 mill 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.

Casting Rolling Mill Experience

Element has supplied casting rolling mills integrated into a full line of our materials processing and handling equipment to provide full processing of cast strip to coil. These lines typically consist of the casting mill, a temper pass mill, flying shear and coiling equipment for take-up of the finished product.
