In the cold rolling process, good lubrication can reduce roll forces, but there are limitations for hard steel types. To improve lubrication, various options related to lubricant design and application are explored while a numerical roll bite model investigates the effect of lubricant properties on roll forces when rolling hard steel types.
Surface Microstructure of Normal and Defected Cold Rolled Sheet, Investigated by SEM/EDS and Surface ProfilometryNoah Reape2017-10-13T15:05:52-04:00
This paper features the deviating surface microstructure of some common lubrication-related surface defects such as mottling and “white marks,” as well as heat scratches and frictional pickup.
An accurate and comprehensive understanding of the rolling process, particularly with respect to tribological factors and diverse friction regimes in the roll-bite.
