Steel Rolling Mill
Metal Pass supplies
steel rolling mill
equipment with mill
technological design and
know-how supplies for
both mill process and
mill product. See
Metal Pass, based in
Pittsburgh, PA, USA, provides steel wire
rod and bar rolling mill, with both machinery and automation systems (Level 1, Level 2 and
Level 3). Based on the customer requirements in building a wire
rod and bar mill, Metal Pass provides key technological data,
roll pass schedule and control/automation systems
(hardware and software).
The designed rolling mill is
technologically proven with multiple installations. Metal Pass
cooperates with its partners in supplying such a technology.
Major features for such a mill
system are as follows:
- Rolling speed: 60-80m/s or
- Billet size: 120mm, 150mm up
to 180mm square
- Finish size: Dia. 5.5mm or
larger round (or possibly also square, etc.)
- Controlled rolling and cooling: with controlled water-box cooling and controlled
air cooling, and draft scheduling for controlled rolling.
- Number of stands may be 26, 28,
or other numbers, depending on the billet size and wire size mix. Rod
rolling with less passes is accepted.
- Technology strengths: top-quality
technological design (mill parameters, pass schedules, etc.), and sophisticated
automation systems (e.g. Level 2).
- Price: very competitive,
only a fraction of the price of the major suppliers
(Morgan, Danieli, SMS, etc.).
detailed equipment description.
Design and development for such
Mill machinery design and
other equipment selection are completed by well-known and
dedicated designers who work in the fields for dozens of years or
more. Machinery equipment is
manufactured by one of a list of partners of Metal Pass. It
is a common practice that the mill manufacturer is a different
company from the mill designer.
- Technological data supplied
by Metal Pass, a world's expert in determining rolling mill
parameters. Those data include: force, torque, power and
temperature, etc. for
rolling processes size by size and pass by pass, and related data
for motor selection, transmission system design and
machinery strengths checkup, etc.
- Roll pass schedules for all
sizes to be rolled. They are designed and provided by Metal Pass
through utilizing its advanced roll pass design suites.
- Controlled rolling and
controlled cooling processes. Those are determined in Metal Pass
by using its finite-differential programs for temperature
prediction and water box cooling process design, and by
its metallurgical models to perform design for
the controlled rolling, etc.
- Mill Level 2 system. It is
directly supplied by Metal Pass, or provided by Metal Pass'
partners or other vendors in customer preferences. Metal
Pass is a well-known developer and researcher on steel mill
Level 2 system. Metal Pass provides improvement solutions
worldwide for Level 2 systems supplied by major Level 2
vendors, and designs top-quality Level 2 system. See
publications since 2008. Mill Level 1 system, and also
Level 3 system if requested, are developed under close
cooperation between Metal Pass and its partners, or, if
referred by customer, may be supplied by any vendor.
