Rolling Mill Stands
Rolling Mill Stands are used to control the outer diameter of the pipe during the elongation and diameter finishing processes. Mill Stands in rolling mills consist of several components and systems, all of which are subject to high temperatures, high loads and extreme conditions.
API Engineering has been involved in the design and supply of a variety of custom built rolling mill stands for Seamless Tube Mills around the world. We supply everything from whole sets of stands to individual stands as well as replacement components for various processes including flat-rolling and shape-rolling. Our Mill Stands are currently used in a number of mills manufacturing high quality Seamless Tubes.
Previous projects include;
- Stretch-Reducing / Sizing Mills for both single drive per stand and single drive per roller configurations;
- Elongation Mills including adjustable 3-roll stands.
Our Mill Stand sizes vary in accordance with the required dimensions of rolls and necks, the groove design and the transmission and drive characteristics. Our engineers have the expertise and experience to develop and design Mill Stands to suit any steel mill's specific needs and requirements.
Both 2-roll and 3-roll configurations are available and existing stands can be reverse engineered to fit with customers' existing equipment.
We also supply spare components for rolling mills including rolls, roller bearings and other consumables, compatible with most international manufacturing standards.
