HSS roll ring is a new product that we specially developed for KOCKS mill bar production line.

It has excellent wear-resistant and shock-proof performance under thermal load with hardness HSD81-87. It will not burst in the rolling progress. It can be processed by CNC lathe machine with high processing efficiency and low cost.

The quantity of steel rolling can be up to 70-80% of cemented carbide roll ring and its price is less than a half of cemented carbide roll ring. So it’s the good choice as the replace plan for the nodular cast iron ring and the TC rings.

It can process various kinds of steel, including carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, and can also be used for processing non-ferrous metals and alloys.

It can be used for producing pipe, rod and bar.

HSS rolls working layer is a high carbon alloy steel containing Cr, Mo, W, V, Nb. The rolls have high hardness and good wear resistance.

All the roll rings of our company are inspected for 3 times one by one to ensure the internal quality of the roll rings. All roll rings are tempered three times to obtain a good metallographic structure to ensure good product performance.

Metallographic examination
The single grinding amount of the roll is less than 1mm. This type of roll is used in finishing applications for increased campaign times and better surface finish.

The spread of 3-roll pass is only one fifth of that of 2-roll pass.
Moreover, the 3-roll pass has good sizing ability even at higher deformation.
the difference between 3roll and 2roll
The groove wear of three roll pass is smaller, and the cost of roll and guide is reduced by about 30%.
Groove wear of three roll pass is smaller
The surface quality of the finished bar is better by three-roll rolling.

HSS Roll Rings for KOCKS Bar Mills


  • High durability and wear resistance: HSS roll rings are known for their high level of hardness, which results in greater durability and wear resistance. They can withstand the demanding conditions of the KOCKS bar mills and maintain their performance over time.
  • Improved productivity: With HSS roll rings, the KOCKS bar mills can achieve higher speeds and feed rates, leading to improved productivity. The reduced downtime for roll changes also contributes to increased productivity.
  • Enhanced product quality: HSS roll rings offer superior surface finish, dimensional accuracy, and consistency, leading to high-quality end products. The roll rings’ improved wear resistance also helps maintain the required tolerances over an extended period, ensuring consistent product quality.
Is it necessary for using cooling water in high-speed steel rolling mill rolls in bar rolling line?2023-07-26T01:20:07+00:00

The usage requirements of high-speed steel rolling mill rolls in bar rolling line are basically the same as those of conventional material rolls, but due to their relatively higher hardness, special emphasis is placed on cooling conditions here.

The ideal cooling system should have a ring-shaped distribution of a series of nozzles that can ensure continuous and sufficient water flow towards the groove. Among these nozzles, the main nozzle should be located near the exit guide, and the water sprayed from this nozzle should account for 30% of the total water volume on the entire groove. The spraying angle should be between 20-30°, and its function is to ensure that the cooling water is rapidly sprayed onto the part of the groove that has just separated from the rolled piece. This is particularly important. The water pressure should be maintained at above 0.5MPa, and the water volume per slot for a single roll should not be less than 300L/min, ensuring that 70-80% of the water volume is on the exit side. The cooling water must be completely flushed into the groove. Since the cooling conditions of the lower roll are worse than those of the upper roll, the water volume of the lower roll should be slightly higher than that of the upper roll. The cooling water should be precipitated and the content of solid particles should be reduced as much as possible.

Although there are significant differences in the water cooling device, cooling method, water volume, water pressure, and nozzle angle of the roll for each mill, reducing the surface temperature of the roll, maintaining a uniform distribution of temperature, and ensuring the cooling effect of the roll surface are essential for improving the service life of the roll and improving the surface quality of the rolled material. Under similar cooling methods and water pressure, increasing the cooling water volume of the roll has a significant effect on reducing the roll temperature and reducing roll surface heat cracks.

When a bar rolling mill using high-speed steel rolls encounters steel sticking or stacking, the water should be immediately stopped, the upper roll should be lifted quickly to remove the rolled material from the roll surface, and the rolled material piled up on the lower roll should be removed immediately, allowing the heated groove to slowly cool in the air. When production resumes after incident handling, the slot must be changed, and it should be done at least 2-3 slots away. It is absolutely not allowed to allow cooling water to be flushed or flow onto the heated groove. If it is inevitable and the slot cannot be changed, the roll must be replaced. After the roll cools naturally, it can be reused on the machine. Otherwise, if the cooling water is directly poured onto the overheated groove, cracks will inevitably appear on the groove.
