As part of a new research project, a collaboration with the Materials Technology Chair at the Ruhr University Bochum, Deutsche Edelstahlwerke Specialty Steel GmbH & Co. KG and C.D. Wälzholz GmbH & Co KG has been entered into with the intention of developing a hybrid roll for cold-rolling applications.
Manufacturing for hot rolling
This new grade is being developed in cooperation with a manufacturer of sections, the goal being process optimisation. Applications include special profiles for the automotive, transportation and rail manufacturing industries. Such rolls have traditionally been made in cast materials. The focus is on obtaining a uniform hardness level from top to bottom of the profile
