07 Single-Stand Reversing Mill


Step 7 | Single-Stand Reversing Mill

Pickled steel can also be cold-rolled at the single-stand reversing mill. During this added-value stage the steel is cold reduced 50-80% using up to 1,800 tons of roll force.

Typically the steel will go through three to five passes before it is reduced to a specific gauge. The product at this stage is termed ‘full-hard’ and can be sold in this state.

Cold-rolled full-hard sheet steel is primarily used in roll formed applications such as building panels and roof decking. Full-hard product may also be sent to a galvanizing line for coating.
