As many things are going very fast in today's changing world. So, we have to be prepared for all those changes. Technology is one of those things which is going a rapid change from a few couple of years. People are becoming familiar with the machines. Different types of machines are used by different groups for different purpose. Here, we will make discussions about steel rolling mill machinery.

This machine is used in factories for preparing metal sheets. Before moving ahead, you must know what metal is? Well metal is an electropositive element having shiny surface and is good conductors of heat and electricity and can be melted or fused into any shape you want by heating it on a high temperature. Metal sheets are made by passing the material between the rollers. It is used for different purposes such as nail making, metal or steel sheets. This machine is categorized into two parts: hot rolling mill and cold rolling mill.

If the temperature of the metal is above than its recrystallization temperature then it is termed as hot rolling process. If the temperature of the metal is below than its recrystallization temperature then it is termed as cool rolling process. In hot rolling mill, a large piece of metal is heated above their temperature and then deformed between rollers. Cold steel rolling mill machinery can be used for all types of heavy mechanical engineering equipments.

Rolling process is one of different types which include flat rolling, foil rolling, ring rolling, roll bending, roll forming, and profile rolling, etc. Flat rolling is a process in which a material having a rectangular cross section is fed between the rollers which results in metal sheets. Float rolling process is used for producing foils. In this process, rolling is done by cluster mill because small thickness requires a small diameter rolls. Ring rolling process is a special type of process that increases the diameter of the ring. Roll bending process produces cylindrical shaped...
