Hot Rolling

  • Hot Rolling

    Premium solutions for mills

    Save production costs thanks to long tool life

    Our high-quality carbide grades are characterised by excellent wear resistance, toughness and surface quality. This is why they are ideal for long-term utilisation with high rolling forces and temperatures.

The optimal solution for your individual requirements

According to the application, we provide various carbide grades and sintered rolls in different sizes as well as semi-finished and ready-to-use rolls suitable for all fields of application. The rolls are available with or without groove. Furthermore we also produce silicon nitride rolls which show exceptional performance as guide rolls or pressure rolls.

    Advantages & Benefits

    Hard materials show notably less wear than conventional steels: they are harder and characterised by higher fracture toughness and compressive strength.

    Product Details

    • Hot Rolling

      Our carbide grades possess the perfect properties for economic hot rolling. They withstand high stress, simultaneously achieving considerably longer service life as well as better surface quality and dimensional accuracy compared to rolls made of steel or cast iron.


      Carbide properties:

      • Wear resistance
      • Fracture toughness
      • High compressive strength
      • Fatigue strength
      • Thermal shock resistance

    Available in carbide:

    • Carbide rolls for No-Twist mills (CTE product family)
    • Guide and pressure rolls (ready to use)
    • Composite rolls for conventional hot rolling lines


    Available in ceramic (silicon nitride):

    Guide and pressure rolls (ready to use) can be supplied in a range of outer diameter D = 30 to D = 180 mm.
