The rolling mill is an 8? wide, four-speed, four-high, reversing Fenn mill that is currently equipped with 5? diameter, tool steel backup rolls.
Typical use of this mill is to produce small quantities of experimental aluminum sheet for laboratory trials. It has also supported studies of cold reduction of various aluminum alloys to produce plots of mechanical properties versus percent reduction.
Sheet can be produced to support experimental stamping. The mill has a 100,000 lb maximum closing force and can cold roll a wide range of metals.
By changing the geometry of the rolls, section rolling is also possible. This provides the ability to manufacture many shapes including round and square bars.
