Rolling, or plate rolling, is a forming process where metal plate, sheet, or stock is fed through a series of rollers. The rollers are set to a desired thickness and as the metal is passed between them, the rollers reduce the thickness of the material as well as give the metal a uniform gauge.
Plate Rolls generally utilize hydraulics to be the driving force to feed and roll the material. The machines can have as little as two rolls, where one is driven, and as many as 4 rolls.
