Temper Mill

A temper mill processes steel sheets or plates in a conveyor system, passing them through a horizontal pass cold rolling mill stand to create the desired surface finish. The mill may also include a cut-to-length process and the steel may be recoiled to form a coiled finished product if desired.

The heart of the temper mill is the cold rolling mill stand which provides the temper pass, creating the required surface finish. This can be a 2-high, 4-high or 6-high mill, either work-roll driven or back-up roll driven. Some temper mills use two stands, depending on the intended final product.

An accurate inspection system can verify the quality of the surface finish produced at the temper mill. It can also detect and classify any defects that may be introduced by problems with the cold rolling process, safeguarding product quality.
