Compacting Rolling Mill

Compacting rolling mill is used for converting powder or powder like material into continuous strip. This continuous strip is then typically processed through a sintering furnace before being processed to finished productions. Compacting mill is typically 2 high mill configurations in either a horizontal or vertical relationship.

Compacting 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.

Compacting Rolling Mill Experience

Element has supplied compacting mills for continuous strip production of multiple exotic alloys. These mills have ranged from the loose compaction of powder to taking incoming material to full density with finite gap and force control.
