Definition Metal Working/Mechanical Working/Metal Forming Processes
Definition The process in which permanent change is obtained in a metal shape by plastic deformation under the action of external forces.
Why Metal Forming is required? Economical and time saving process to obtain desired shape from the given material. To improve mechanical properties. To minimize defects such as holes, cracks etc To distribute impurities equally in metal.
Classification of Metal Working Hot Working of metals. Cold Working of metals.
Hot Working of metal
Definition It can be defined as the plastic deformation of metals and alloys at a temperature above recrystallisation and below melting point such that fine refined grain is obtained. Maximum working temperature is 0.7 to 0.9 times the melting point.
Advantages Properties such as strength, ductility and toughness is improved. Density increases by removing voids. Desired shape can be easily obtained under plastic deformation. Effect of impurities can be reduced. Good grain structure. Atoms in same direction leads to better strength.
Disadvantages Surface finish is not good. Required accuracy is not obtained. Process takes place at higher temperature, so tool life is minimum. Thus handling cost is high.

Cold Working of Metals Hot Working of metal Cold Working of metal Normal TemperatureTemp Rise Recrystallization temperature Melting Point
Definition The process in which plastic (permanent) deformation occurs when the process is carried out at a temperature lower than recrystallisation temperature. The temperature is half of absolute melting temp. Theoretically, it is room temperature. (25 to 30 “C)
Advantages Improves hardness and strength Desired accuracy is possible. Heating is not required. Thus, cost and time is reduced.
Disadvantages Reduces ductility, thus difficult to process. Force required is more. Produce internal and residual stresses. Atoms are deformed. Low ductility -> Difficult to process. Cost increases.

Difference between Hot and Cold Working Hot Working 1.Process is done above recrystallisation temperature 2.Process is done on hot metal. 3.Less force is required. 4.No residual stress is formed in the metal. Cold Working 1.Below recrystallisation temperature. 2.Process is done on metals at room temperature. 3.More force is required. 4.Residual stresses formed is more.
Difference between Hot and Cold Working Hot Working 5.Improves ductility, stiffness and toughness. 6.Accuracy in surface finish is less. 7.Maintenance cost is high. Cold Working 5.Improves strength and hardness. 6.Accuracy in surface finish is more. 7.Maintenance cost is low.
ROLLING PROCESS INGOT SLAB BLOOMS Sheets Plates
Definition Rolling process is the process in which the metals and alloys are plastically deformed by passing them between circular or cylindrical rollers.
What actually happens in Rolling Process???? 1.Rolls or rollers are arranged. 2.The metal piece which is to be deformed is drawn between the space of the rollers (by using frictional force between the rolls and metal surface) 3.Metal is squeezed (compressive force)
Angle of Contact Feed direction Angle of contact New grain t2 t1 Friction Force Normal Force R Old Grain AC B O V2V2 V1V1
Angle of Contact From the fig. we can say that, when the roller and work piece make contact, then we get arcAB. Here arc AB is the contact portion. Now, arc AB makes an angle “θ” with O. This angle formed is known as angle of contact.
Angle of Contact: Cosθ = 1- ( t 1- t 2) 2R Where, t 1 = thickness before rolling t 2 = thickness after rolling R = radius of roll θ = Angle of contact or bite
Coefficient of Friction Now, coefficient of friction is given by, µ = Frictional Force Normal Force =tanβ Where, β = Friction angle
Angle of Friction (β)
Principle working of Rolling Stage 1: At the beginning, the metal enters smoothly and it should not come back from roller. For that, θ‹β
Stage 2: Feed direction Angle of contact New grain t2 t1 Friction Force Normal Force R Old Grain AC B O V2V2 V1V1
Stage 2: Between B and C, speed of work piece is less than roller speed Stage 3: At point C, the speed of work piece and roller is same. This point is known as no slip point. Stage 4: From point C to A, the speed of work piece is more than the roller i.e. V 2 > V > V 1
Forward Slip Forward slip is the slip that is caused due to difference between, the strip velocity and roller velocity. i.e if the strip velocity is greater than roller velocity, then a slip occurs, which is known as forward slip. Forward Slip = V 2 – V where, V 2 = Strip Velocity V V = Roller peripheral velocity
Types of Rolling Hot Rolling Cold Rolling
Hot Rolling Definition: Hot rolling is defined as the rolling process which occurs above recrystallisation temperature.
Hot Rolling Process Video
Points to remember The metals are recrystalized parallelly along with deformation. Temperature is made constant during the rolling process. The distance between the roller is less than the thickness of the metal (ingot), the thickness of metal reduce and length increases.
Advantages The grains become finer, thus mechanical properties improve. Productivity increases. Due to high temperature, high pressure is created. This pressure reduces the cavity and voids. The grains are equally divided. Thus,shape is uniform.
Advantages Since the impurities are distributed equally, its effect is minimized. Entire process is economic.
Disadvantages 1.Surface finish is not good due to oxidation. 2.Since the process is carried out at high temperature, its handling and tooling cost is more. 3.Metal (output) of desired measurement is not obtained.
COLD ROLLING Definition: It is defined as the process that is carried out at room temperature or temperature below recrystallisation temperature.
Cold Rolling Process Video
Points to remember Since in cold working, tremendous force is applied and when such force is removed, some residual forces remain inside the metal. Before cold working is carried out, the scale (formed due to hot rolling) are removed by submerging the metal into sulphuric acid. Then, it is washed with water and cold working is done. It is done for softer metals. Eg. Aluminum, copper, silver.
Advantages Surface finish is good. Measurement accuracy is achieved. Tool handling cost is less. Porosity (sponge like) is reduced. Mechanical properties improve. Here also, the impurities are evenly distributed. Thus, its effect is minimized.
Disadvantages Since this process is carried out at room temperature, higher amount of force is required. Ductility is decreased. Residual stresses are formed.
HOT ROLLINGCOLD ROLLING Process is carried out at above recrystallisation temperature. Process is carried out at below recrystallisation temperature. Pressure applied is less due to high temperature. High pressure is applied. Coarse grain becomes fine grains. The grains becomes longer and distorted. No residual stresses are generated. Residual stresses are generated. Tool handling cost is more. Tool handling cost is less. Improves ductility. Ductility reduces. Surface finish and accuracy is less. Surface Finish and Accuracy is more.
Basic Definitions Ingot : The metal in a square shape obtained from casting process is known as ingot. Area range : 300 to 500 mm^2 Length is between 1.5 to 2m 400mm 1.5 m
Basic Definitions Bloom: Metal piece smaller than ingot. Area range : 200 to 300 mm^2 Length is between 3.5 to 5.5 m 250 mm 4.5 m
Basic Definitions Billet : Metal piece produced from bloom is known as Billet. Further billet is rolled into bars. Billet 100 mm BilletBillet Bars
Basic Definitions Slab: The rectangular cross section type metal obtained from rolling of bloom or billet is known as slab. Thickness: 50 to 150 mm Width : 0.5 to 1.5 m SLAB
Basic Definitions Plate : Further rolling slabs, we get plates. Width : 750 to 1200 mm Thickness: 2.7 to 7mm Length: 1.5m to 3m PLATE
Basic Definitions Sheet : Rolling of Slab will result into sheets. Thickness: 0.21 to 2.64mm Width and length same as plate. SHEET
Basic Definitions Flat : 2.5mm to 6mm thickness strip is known as flat. Strip : 0.1 mm to 2.5 mm thickness is known as strip. The width is very less compared to length.
Factors affecting rolling and their functions 1.Roller Diameter 2.Metal Friction 3.Presence of tension 4.Operation Speed
1) Roller Diameter (R) Function: To make contact with work piece. While it is in contact with the work piece, it applies pressure and the area of the plate is reduced and the length is increased.
Calculation of roller diameter Angle of contact is given by : Cosθ = 1- ( t 1- t 2) 2R Thus from above equation, we get roller diameter as, R = ( t 1- t 2)___ 2(1- Cosθ )
2) Metal Friction FRICTIONAL FORCE
Definition The force that occurs due to friction between the area of contact between the roller and work piece is known as frictional force or metal friction.
Function of Friction. Initially, the angle of friction (β) should be higher than angle of contact (θ). Thus, because of this, the work piece does not come back. i.e θ< β Also, based on angle of contact, we can find out mill drive design, number of passes, draft (t1-t2) and power requirement.
3) Presence of tension When the work piece is pulled from one end, tensile stress is created. Thus, this will reduce, the roller diameter and amount of power to be applied through rollers. Tensile force
4) Operation speed Refer slide 36 – 38. Conclusion: Due to forward slip, the exit velocity increases. Thus, we can say that, the effect of coefficient of friction decreases. So, operational speed is also important for rolling process.
Roll Mills used in Rolling Process: 1.Two – high rolling mill a)2 high pull over mill b)2 high reversing mill 2. Three high rolling mill 3. Four high rolling mill 4. Cluster rolling mill 5. Continuous rolling mill 6.Special mill
Two – High Rolling mills 2- High Pull Rolling Mill In this type of rolling mill, the direction of feed is from one side only. It uses two rollers. i.e when the first pass is over, the work piece is again brought back to its original position and the rolled back again, which lesser space between the rollers.
Two – High Rolling mills Two High Reversing Mill In this method of rolling, the direction of feed is from both direction. Here also, 2 mills are used. During this process, handling of work piece is easier. (1) (2)
Two – High Rolling mills Two high rolling mills are used for bloom, billet or slab rolling. Two high roll mills are normally used for obtaining medium change in cross section. For every pass in reverse mill, the direction of roller is to be changed.
Three – High Rolling mills Here total three rollers are used. Upper, middle and lower roller. As shown in figure, we can easily see that the gap between upper roll and middle roll is more compared to middle and lower roll.
Three – High Rolling mills The reason for this is, initially, the ingot or bloom is fed between upper and middle roll to decrease the cross section. Thereafter, in the reverse pass, the work piece is passed between middle and lower roller to further decrease its cross section.
Three – High Rolling mills In this process, there is no need to change the direction of roller. Thus, minimum power is required. Bloom, billet, channel, rail can be manufactured. It is cheaper.
Four High Rolling Mills Here total four rolls are used, of which two are bigger rolls and two smaller ones. The bigger rolls are known as back up rolls. The smaller rolls are known as working rolls.
Four High Rolling Mills Here, metal with bigger size are rolled by passing them between the working (smaller) rolls. Since, these rolls are used to roll bigger sizes metals, they have to face shocks and vibrations.
Four High Rolling Mills Also, huge amount of pressure is to be applied. For this purpose, back up rolls (bigger rolls) are used. The work piece can be entered between the rolls in both direction by changing the roll direction and space between the working rolls.
Cluster Rolling Mill As from the figures, we can say cluster mills are the type of rolling mills, which has 6 or more rolling mills in operation. It is used for cold working of metals.
Continuous (Tandom) Rolling Mill Its arrangement is similar to two – high rolling mill. Here, the metal work piece passes from one roll pass to another and we get continuous reduction in size. Used for mass production.
Schematic illustration of various roll arrangements: (a) two-high; (b) three- high; (c) four-high; (d) cluster (Sendzimir) mill (e) Tandom rolling mill.
Special Mill Nowadays, usage of special type of rolling mills are increasing in industries at higher rate. There are main two types of Special Rolling Mill. They are as follows – Universal Rolling Mill – Planetary Rolling Mill
Universal Rolling Mill In this type of rolling mill there are two vertical rolling mills, and two horizontal rolling mills. This mill generally produces H-section and I-section. This mills are used for producing accurate edges.
Planetary Rolling Mill Here the rolls are arranged in the shape of sun and planets, thus its named as planetary rolls.(only for understanding) The feed rolls, push the metal into the gap between the planetary rolls.
Planetary Rolling Mill Further after rolling from planetary rolls, the work piece will pass through two or, four high mill. The product obtained is in form of strips.

Basic Elements of Rolling Mill Rolls Main components of rolling process. It is rolled and gives shape to the metal. Two types of rolls are used, (1) Working (2) Back up rolls. Working rolls contact with work piece. While Back up rolls provide strength to working rolls, do minimize deflection and add up force.
Basic Elements of Rolling Mill Bearing and Housing They provide support to the rollers shaft. The rollers shaft are fixed at both the endings by bearings and housing for proper alignment. If not, the product will be defective.
