  • Publication number: 20130152653
    Abstract: A rolling apparatus for rolling angle profiles from rolling stock has upper and lower horizontal profile rolls rotatable about respective parallel upper and lower axes and together defining an open or closed roll gap that lies in a rolling plane perpendicular to a travel direction of the rolling stock. At least one pair of nonhorizontal edging rolls laterally compress the rolling stock and define a rolling plane extending perpendicular to the travel direction of the rolling stock. The rolling plane defined by the profile rolls and the rolling plane defined by the pair of edging rolls are not coplanar with each other. This rolling stand can do angle rolling in reversing and also continuous operating mode.

  • Patent number: 6672124
    Abstract: A rolling roll train of the staggered-roll tandem type has a pair of upright stand walls with windows or openings for receiving a multiplicity of pairs of rolls which can be changed as a unit. The fact that unitary walls with traverses between the walls for stabilizing them and where those traverses are located between the roll pairs, enables the spacing between the roll pairs to be substantially reduced by comparison with free-standing individual mill stands for the roll pairs.

  • Publication number: 20030079512
    Abstract: An apparatus for repositioning the web of a rolled structural shape such as an H-beam or I-beam in which the web spans between two flanges. The horizontal rolls of the mill stand are individually adjusted by computer based upon a measurement of the web profile upstream of the mill stand along a conveyor for the workpiece so that the rolling gap is located centrally between the upper and lower flange edges notwithstanding the fact that the web may have originally been off-center.
