Rolling - Visit our website

We provide hot rolling and cold rolling services. 

  • Hot Rolling: cast billets are re-heated to temperatures above the recrystallisation temperature before being fed through a hot rolling mill to allow new grains to form in the deformed strip. The strip is then coiled.   
  • Cold Rolling: Following the hot rolling process, the coils are then cold rolled down to the desired final size. This is done well below the recrystallisation temperature. The existing grains in the metal are elongated and strength is imparted to the metal. Some annealing steps may be used to re-soften the material for further cold rolling if required.
