Rolling – Hot and cold rolling

The reversible hot and cold rolling stands allow rolling of sheets and heavy plates. In-line reheating furnaces, slab cutting device, roller tables and slab handling devices, cooling simulators and coiling furnaces are available in the vicinity of these rolling stands. A novel hydraulic gauge control allows very short interpass times. The rolling stands are equipped with both thermocouple logging as well as pyrometers for accurate temperature control.


  • typical rolling speed: 0.8-1 m/s
  • roll displacement speed: up to 20 mm/s
  • max table width: 750 mm, max roll gap 250 mm
  • min hot band thickness: 1 mm

OCAS’s high tech run-out table allows for accurate cooling paths following hot rolling.
