Steel Rolling Mill Supply 

Metal Pass supplies steel rolling mill equipment with mill technological design and know-how supplies for both mill process and mill product. See detailed equipment description.

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 still higher
  • 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.).

See detailed equipment description.

Design and development for such a mill

  • 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 applying 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 near 10 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.
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.

See a recent paper on roll pass related application: Development of Model-Intensive Web-based Rolling Mill Applications (presented in AISTech 2009).

Quality Discussion

Metal Pass has engineers who were employed as key engineers in the world's top engineering companies for wire rod mill, etc. They include the then senior engineer of Morgan and then China market representative of Morgan. High quality models, design procedures and automation systems, etc. from Metal Pass that are integrated into the mill design and mill manufacture, greatly increase the technical level of the Metal Pass mill. Metal Pass' strengths, in accurate prediction of mill design parameters, high quality roll pass and sophisticated Level 2 system, may be its US competitors' weaknesses. Considering the high quality of the rolled product achievable, so the general performance of Metal Pass' wire rod mill could even reach a level same as or similar to that of its US competitors, though the price of Metal Pass' mill is only a fraction of its competitors. See detailed equipment description.
