Roll-Kraft, a manufacturer of custom roll tooling for the tube and pipe and roll form industries, has installed an additional cold rolling tryout mill at its headquarters location in Mentor, OH. This addition brings the total to four tryout mills.

The company can now test 1.50", 2.00", 2.25", 2.50", and 3.00" bores. The vertical centers range from 4-1/16" to 10-3/4" maximum. The mills are 12-, 16-, 18-, and 24-pass, which replicate the most prevalent mills in the industry.

By choosing to try out tooling at Roll-Kraft, the customer can be assured that new tooling designs will function as expected and any needed changes can be made prior to taking delivery.

"This is another step towards achieving easy setups and first-time performance on the customer's production floor," said Roll-Kraft president, Chuck Gehrisch. "Over the past 2 years, our rolls have performed right out of the box over 97% of the time for our customers, and we'll continue to make improvements, such as this new tryout mill, to drive that number even higher."
