Introduction to Metal Rolling
Rolled cylinders can be created through metal rolling. In this process, metal is passed through a pair of rolls to form tubes, pipes, and cylinders of a desired size.
Metal Rolling Methods
Cold rolling is primarily used to create tubes out of sheets, strips, plates, and rods. Our cold rolled products are typically under 0.250″ in thickness, depending on the material type and length of the cylinder. Cold rolling, which can be done in a single pass, does not reduce the metal thickness. These cylinders can also be created using seam welding technology.
Types of Metal Rolling Processes
There are several types of metal rolling processes. These include:
- Ring Rolling
- Roll Bending
- Roll Forming
- Profile Rolling
- Controlled Rolling
With applications across a variety of industries, rolled cylinders can be made from materials including carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, and aluminum. We can create rolled cylinders that are 0.018 of an inch to 0.250 of an inch thick and up to 72 inches in length.
