The plant should be able to change the line according to shift in rolled stock with virtually no to less downtime. In order to remain successful, the Rolling Mill plant should be competitive and quickly configurable. The plant should also be capable to provide wide range of products out of single mill layout.
Solution devised by Jatindra Engineering Corporation:
With multiple installations worldwide, Short-stress type Housing-less Stands are one of the main products developed by JEC for Rebar and Long Product rolling sector. These high performance mill stands are successful because of their high rigidity and flexibility. The stands can be reconfigured quickly despite being in operation, permitting a wide range of production.
High stiffness and reduced elongation
The short stress path induced by the screw-down and chocks of the housing to counter rolling load, allows the stand to remain compact despite being highly rigid. Very tight product tolerances can be secured in spite of intense rolling loads.
Advantages of Short-stress Housing-less Stands:
