Rod & Bar Rolling – A Practical Training Seminar

20–23 February 2017 • The Atlanta Marriott Marquis • Atlanta, GA, USA


Featuring a tour of Gerdau Long Steel North America Cartersville Mill

About the Program

This seminar will focus on breaking down key mill elements and how controlling these elements will positively affect hot rolled as-rolled quality, facility utilization and yields. The presenters will cover the basic making of steel, readying a mill for its production cycles, reheat furnace, work rolls and rolling practices that affect mill quality through final customer requirements. A technical look at rolling forces will increase one’s understanding of torque and how it relates to mill rolling equipment. In addition, the presentations will include a realistic approach to safety and the basic theory of rolling.

Who Should Attend

Rolling personnel, i.e., mill managers, rollers, roll shop, setup, floor operators, maintenance and other support personnel who wish to gain a better understanding of the rod and bar rolling process and final end products.
