Basic training

The roll as a tool – in cooperation with Gontermann Peipers GmbH

You know rolls are highly sophisticated tools. Combined with the actuators and process models in the rolling mill, they define the quality of your product. What’s more, due to the extreme conditions in the mill stand, the rolls need to meet very high demands. This is a basic training that offers you the opportunity to learn more about “the roll” as the central tool in any rolling mill.

The content is geared toward the requirements of rolling mill operators in the steel and NF metal industry. That makes it ideal for you if you want to learn about or increase your understanding of the basics – starting with manufacturing right through to how various roll types and qualities are used. Included here is a one-day classroom module plus a tour of the roll production shop of our cooperation partner, Gontermann-Peipers GmbH.

The learning units (1.5 days):

  • Roll manufacturing
  • Roll qualities and requirements
  • Roll care
  • Roll damage
  • Guided tour of the roll production shop at Gontermann-Peipers GmbH, Siegen
