Looper & Runout rollers for hot strip mill

During the production of steel, your production components are subjected to enormous loads and high temperatures. These conditions can significantly impact upon your production capacity unless your components are in the best possible condition. This is also true of your transport rollers, which must always be able to withstand these heavy load factors. In addition, the rolls must be corrosion resistant and the friction between the rollers and the steel strips must be at a maximum in order to effectively guide the strip on its way to the coiler.
To meet these demanding requirements, we developed the Habets High Grip (HHG) roller, which has excellent performance characteristics in terms of wear resistance, corrosion resistance and grip between roll and steel strip. Depending upon the specific external environmental factors, the HHG roll loses only a minimal fraction of its extremely tough outer layer and can, on average, continue performing effectively for up to 50 million tones of steel.
As a result, you benefit from significant savings on maintenance costs and can also increase production speed, making a significant expansion of capacity possible.
If you wish, Habets will provide you with expert advice regarding your transport rollers and consult with you to calculate the savings you can achieve by working with Habets High Grip rollers.

The most modern hot rolling mill in Europe has recognised the importance of working with a roller table that is always in the best possible condition and has therefore provided it with Habets’ High Grip (HHG) rollers.


Advantages of the HHG roll:

  • Highly extended lifetime( loss of 0.15 mm. thickness per million production)
  • It becomes possible to roll thinner material, and thus expanding your “product window” and increasing your delivery options for your clients.
  • Reducing the number of cobbles by using HHG rolls can save you large amounts of money.
  • You can increase production speed and so raise your output.
  • Improved tracking on the way to coiler
  • Based on years of hands-on experience in various hot rolling mills

Typical characteristics of HHG Roll:

  • Excellent wear resistance results in extended tool life.
  • “High Grip” provides improved tracking on the way to coiler.
  • “Out off passline” indication
  • Robust and reliable construction
