The steel rolling machinery is categorized into three types namely hot strip mill, cold strip mill and semi-automatic rolling mills. These machines are used for the manufacture of various types of steel products.
Hot strip mill: Hot strip mill is used to produce high-strength hot strip. It has a wide feed width and a long production line. The pressure in the strip mill can be varied from 600 to 1500 tons per square inch (T/S).
Cold strip mill: Cold strip mill is used to produce low-strength cold strip. It has a narrower feed width and a shorter production line. The pressure in the strip mill can be varied from 100 to 1200 T/S.
Semi-automatic rolling mills: Semi-automatic rolling mills are used for producing medium-strength cold strip or hot rolled coils (HRC). These mills have a wider feed width than the cold strip mills but narrower than the hot strip mills. They are also known as twin screw, triple screw and quadruple screw mills. The rollers in these mills are usually made of silicon steel or alloy steel. HRC can be produced with a range of pressures from 100 to 1200 T/S.
There are many types of steel rolling machinery accidents, and each one is unique. Rolling mill accidents can happen anytime the machine is in operation, whether it’s a small mill or a large factory. The most common type of rolling mill accident is an engine failure. When this happens, the machine can’t stop quickly enough and can cause serious injuries. Other common types of rolling mill accidents include falls, collisions with other machines, and fires. Injuries can range from minor injuries like cuts and bruises to fatal injuries like head trauma and spinal cord injury.
If you have been injured by a steel rolling machinery, contact an attorney. Steel rolling machinery is often very dangerous and can cause serious injuries. An attorney can help you file a lawsuit and get the compensation that you deserve.
