PLATE ROLLING


Plate Rolling is the typical method of curving plate (i.e. sheet of material) into round / cylindrical or conical shapes. This method of rolling is similar to the pyramid rolling method where individual "shafts / rolls" turn independently to form the sheet of material to desired radii. Capacity is defined by thickness of material and overall width of material. A section of plate is placed in a machine and curved between three or four rolls. Bending occurs when the distance between these rolls is manipulated before each successive pass. The diameter that a plate roll can roll a piece of plate will be limited to the roller diameter in the plate roll (i.e. one can’t roll plate to a diameter tighter then the plate roller die itself).

Small Plate Roll
Small: 3/8" thick x 6 ft wide A36 material. On this machine we can roll down to a 7.87" diameter.
Medium Plate Roll
Medium: ¾" thick x 10 ft wide A36 material. On this machine we can roll down to a 14¾" diameter.
Large Plate Roll
Large: 2½" thick x 10 ft wide A36 material. The largest diameter we can roll off this machine is up to a 12 ft diameter and we are limited to 20,000# sheets of material (which is our crane capacity). The opening between rolls is 4¾", which is the limit to thickness that can fit in this machine.

Just want to let you and your shop guys know that the rolling of the beams that you did for us was a quality job and done and delivered on time. Thanks for the good work and hope to do more in the future.
