Metal section rolling is a specialist manufacturing process used to reduce the width of a metal part or to make the surface of a metal section smooth. Very widely used in the metal industry, section rolling is a necessary step in the creation of most metal products. All kinds of metal parts can be made using metal section rolling including rings, flat rings, tubes and even décor items such as spiral handrails for staircases.
Metal section rolling involves passing metal through pairs of rolls to ensure an entirely even surface is created. This process can be carried out under hot or cold conditions. Hot section rolling is when the metal is rolled at a temperature higher than its recrystallisation temperature, making the metal more susceptible to being shaped and formed. Cold rolling is when the temperature of the metal is below its recrystallisation temperature, a state which increases the strength of the metal to improve the end finish of its surface
