Roll-Kraft, a leading provider of tooling to the tube and pipe industry, has added a video to the company website that illustrates the features and benefits of tube and pipe split rolls. The video gives a detailed explanation of how using split and bolted rolls will benefit companies that produce tube and pipe. It also details the considerable cost savings possible due to the fact that split rolls can last 10-15 times longer than solid rolls.

Traditionally, roll tooling has consisted of solid steel rolls installed on a mill to form tube and pipe. This configuration, while quite productive and completely acceptable, can be improved upon by using split rolls instead of solid rolls.

As a result of the wearing process during manufacturing, traditional solid rolls must be reground or replaced. When regrinding solid rolls, the diameters must be reduced in order to resurface the worn areas properly. In doing so, the metal line is reduced and the speed is decreased.

This is a problem if the mill does not have variable-speed adjustment and the ancillary stands (side roll, weld box, straightener unit, and cut-off unit) are not adjustable. However, when using split rolls, the contours can be reground without changing or affecting the throat diameter of the roll.

This allows the split roll to be used 10-15 times longer than the solid steel roll, by adding less costly spacers to the setup. This is a dramatic increase in the life of the roll and a substantial savings in expenditures. » CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
