On the Institute of metal forming’s Wagner-Banning ring rolling mill, rings up to 2 meter outer diameter and 300 mm height are producible. Hence, on the one hand experiments in industrial scale can be conducted and on the other hand FE-simulations can be validated. Beside the pressure rolls - necessary for the process “axial profiling” - further profiled tools for investigating profiling processes exist. For developing and testing new rolling strategies, the ring rolling mill features an interface, which allows to change all process parameters. By using the ring rolling mill’s software and further measuring devices forces, torques, tool positions as well as workpiece temperatures can be measured online.
