How To Choose The Right Model Of Rolling Machine?

In a plate-rolling machine project, choosing the right model is very important. The main aspects include processing materials, processing capacity, rolled plate accuracy, rolled plate efficiency, maintenance costs, and safety performance.

Processing Materials Of Plate-rolling Machine

Different plate-rolling machines are suitable for different types, thicknesses, and lengths of plate-rolling materials. The appropriate model should be selected according to the characteristics of the processed materials. It can be used to process a variety of materials. Common plate rolling machines can be used for the following materials.

Metal Plates

Plate rolling machines are mainly used to process metal plates, such as steel plates, stainless steel plates, aluminum plates, copper plates, etc. These metal sheets are widely used in construction, manufacturing, the automotive industry, and other fields.

Cold-rolled Steel Plate

Cold-rolled steel plate is made of hot-rolled steel plate through cold rolling and is usually used to manufacture automobile parts, electrical equipment, steel structures, etc.

Hot-rolled Steel Plate

Hot-rolled steel plate is a steel plate produced through a rolling process at high temperature. It is widely used in construction, bridges, ships, pipelines, and other fields.

Aluminum Plate

Aluminum plate is lightweight, has good processing performance and corrosion resistance, and is often used in aerospace, transportation, electronic equipment, and other fields.

Stainless Steel Plate

A stainless steel plate is composed of iron, chromium, nickel, and other alloys. It has good corrosion resistance and aesthetics and is widely used in food processing, chemical industry, marine engineering, and other fields.

In addition to the above common materials, the plate rolling machine can also be used to process other special materials, such as copper alloy, galvanized sheet, aluminum plate, etc. The specific selection of the plate bending machine needs to be determined based on the material properties, size requirements, and production needs of the processing.

Processing Capacity

Processing capacity refers to the maximum coil diameter, width, and weight that the plate rolling machine can handle. When choosing a suitable plate-rolling machine model, the processing capacity should be considered to meet production needs. The processing capacity of the plate rolling machine can be calculated and evaluated by the following indicators.

Maximum Sheet Width

Refers to the maximum sheet rolling width that the sheet rolling machine can handle, generally expressed in millimeters.

Maximum Sheet Thickness

Refers to the maximum sheet thickness that the sheet rolling machine can handle, usually expressed in millimeters.

Maximum Sheet Diameter

Refers to the maximum sheet diameter that the sheet rolling machine can accommodate, generally expressed in millimeters (mm). This indicator is usually used for equipment such as hydraulic four-roller plate bending machines that can handle large-diameter plate rolling.

Maximum Sheet Weight

Refers to the maximum sheet weight that the sheet rolling machine can handle, generally expressed in tons.

These parameters will directly affect the processing capacity and application scope of the plate-bending machine. When selecting a plate bending machine, the required processing capacity needs to be determined based on actual production needs and material size. Generally speaking, the processing capacity of the plate bending machine should meet the maximum size and weight of the plate rolling requirements in production, and retain a certain margin to cope with possible changes and expansions.

Plate Rolling Accuracy

Plate-rolling accuracy refers to the control capability of the plate-rolling machine and the surface finish of the plate-rolling machine material, which usually affects the quality of the finished product after plate rolling processing. Factors such as the surface roughness of the material and the required accuracy should be considered when purchasing a plate bending machine.

The rolling accuracy of the rolling machine refers to the ability of the rolling machine to control the shape and size of the rolling plate during processing, which is usually related to the flatness, straightness, edge rise, surface finish, and other indicators of the rolling plate. The following are some plate rolling accuracy indicators of the plate rolling machine


Indicates the curve or flatness of the rolled plate. The higher the flatness, the smaller the deviation of the rolled plate’s surface from the plane. Evaluation of flatness is usually expressed in millimeters (mm) or percentages.


Indicates the straightness or straightness of the edge of the rolled plate. If the straightness is high, the edge of the rolled plate will not be significantly bent or deviate from the straight line.

Edge Camber

The edge camber of the rolled plate refers to the bending that occurs on both sides of the rolled plate. The edge rise should be controlled within a reasonable range to ensure the flatness and processing accuracy of the rolled plate.

Surface Finish

The surface finish of the rolled plate refers to the surface roughness and surface defects. A high surface finish can ensure the quality and beauty of the rolled plate surface.

The above are common coiling accuracy indicators. The specific coiling accuracy requirements will vary according to actual production needs and application fields. When selecting a plate rolling machine, you need to determine the appropriate equipment based on the required plate rolling accuracy indicators.

Speed And Efficiency

Coiling speed and processing efficiency are important factors that affect the processing cycle and product productivity. When choosing a suitable plate-bending machine, factors such as material properties, processing accuracy, and production efficiency should be comprehensively considered.

The speed and efficiency of the plate rolling machine refer to the speed and efficiency with which it completes tasks during the processing process. The following are some speed and efficiency indicators of the plate rolling machine:

plate-rolling machine

Feed Speed

refers to the speed at which the plate rolling machine feeds the plate during the feeding process. Higher feed speeds can improve production efficiency, but it is necessary to ensure that the structure and control system of the plate bending machine can handle high-speed feeds stably.

Coiling Speed Of Plate-rolling Machine

Refers to the coiling speed of the coiling machine during the coiling process. Higher coiling speed can improve production efficiency, but it is necessary to ensure the coiling quality and coiling flatness of the coil.

Finishing Speed Of Plate-rolling Machine

Refers to the speed at which the rolling machine takes out the finished rolled plate after completing the processing task. Higher completion speed can effectively improve production efficiency.

Cutting Speed Of Plate-rolling Machine

For plate-rolling machines with cutting functions, it refers to the running speed of the cutting tool during the cutting process. The cutting speed will directly affect production efficiency and cutting quality.

Efficiency Of Plate-rolling Machine

The efficiency of a plate-rolling machine refers to the ability to complete processing tasks within a unit of time. A high-efficiency plate bending machine can complete processing tasks faster and improve production efficiency.

In practical applications, the speed and efficiency of the plate rolling machine are usually affected by many factors, such as the hardness of the processed material, the structure and control system of the plate rolling machine, etc. When choosing a plate-rolling machine that suits your needs, you need to comprehensively consider speed and efficiency indicators and make a selection based on specific production needs.

Maintenance Costs Of Plate-rolling Machine

It should be noted that maintenance and upkeep costs vary depending on the model, specification, and usage of the plate rolling machine. In order to reduce costs, it is recommended to perform regular maintenance and maintenance in accordance with the maintenance manual provided by the equipment manufacturer and ensure that operators operate the equipment in the correct manner.

Safety Performance of Plate-rolling Machine

When purchasing a plate-rolling machine, the safety of the operator, the stability of the plate-rolling machine itself, and the impact on the environment should be considered important considerations.

These factors have different weights and importance in different situations and for different purposes. Choosing a plate-rolling machine that is suitable for your company requires careful evaluation and consideration.
