ROLLING MILLS Filed April 9, 1964 29 t 50 g-l lNVENTOR ROBERT BROWN ATTOLRNEYS United States Patent 3,327,508 ROLLING MILLS Robert Brown, Bournemouth, England, assignor to The Loewy Engineering Company Limited, Bournemouth, England, a corporation of Great Britain Filed Apr. 9, 1964, Ser. No. 358,665 Claims priority, application Great Britain, Apr. 10, 1963, 14,304/ 63 7 Claims. (Cl. 72-6) This invention relates to rolling mills for sheet or strip material. The invention relates in particular to rolling mills for sheet or strip material having means for subjecting them to a pre-stressing force which at all times during the operation of the mill is greater than the separating force produced by the material which is in the gap between the working rolls of the mill. These rolling mills have two roll-assemblies of which each includes a working roll and may also include one or more backing rolls.

The pre-stressing force may be produced in such a mill by one or more hydraulic cylinder-and-ram units, built into the frame of the mill. Usually each of the two housings of the mill has its own hydraulic pre-stressing unit.

In a mill of this type, spacing means have to be provided for keeping the axes of the working rolls at a preset distance from each other and thereby determining the size of the roll-gap and the thickness of the material which passes therethrough. These spacing means are subjected during a rolling operation to a force which is equal to the difference between the pre-st'ressing force and the separating force. The separating force is known to vary frequently from one rolling operation to the next or even during one and the same operation. The reason for these variations is changes in the condition of the rolled material, e.g., changes in its temperature or hardness. Variations in the separating force result in corresponding variations in the diiference between the pre-stressing force and the separating force, provided that the pre-stressing force is kept constant at all times. These variations cause the spacing means to stretch by varying amounts and thus interfere with the pre-set gap between the working rolls. This is undesirable because it leads to the production of material of uneven thickness.

A proposal has been made in British patent specification No. 955,164 which seeks to avoid this drawback. This proposal consists essentially in providing in a rolling mill of the type described means which detect variations in the separating force as they occur during a rolling operation, and means operative to adjust the pre-stressing force under the control of the output of these detecting means in such a manner that the difference between the pre-stressing force and the separating force is kept substantially constant during a rolling operation. In this way, the distance between the axes of the working rolls of the mill and the size of the gap between the working rolls is maintained substantially constant.

In the rolling mill described in British patent specification No. 955,164, the spacing means which determine the distance between the axes of the working rolls are in the form of spindles which are threaded into the bearing chocks of one roll-assembly and abut against load meters placed on top of the bearing chocks of the other roll-assembly. The spindles can be displaced for the purpose of adjusting the size of the roll-gap by an electric motor through reduction gears built into the mill. The load meters may be of the type comprising pressure-responsive cells.

The rolling mill of the present invention is similar in its major aspects to the mill described in British patent specification No. 955,164 in that there are provided in that mill means for pre-stressiug the mill and for controlling the pre-stressing force in response to changes in the separating force measured by load meters, so that the difference between the two forces is substantially constant at all times, with the result that the spacing means are subjected to a substantially constant force during a rolling operation and that the size of the gap between the working trolls is maintained substantially constant as well.

The object of the present invention is to provide a rolling mill as described above which is of simpler design than that of British patent specification No. 5 ,164.

In accordance with the present invention, there are interposed between the bearing chocks of one roll-assembly and the load meters which indicate the difference between the p re-stressing and the separating force, plain rods which act as spacing means and which by-p-ass the bearing chocks of the other roll-assembly.

These spacer rods serve the purpose of keeping the first roll-assembly apart from the second roll-assembly and of transmitting the forces acting between the roll-assemblies to the load cells. Relative adjustment of the two -roll-assemblies is eifected not by the spacer rods but by separate means which act direct on the bearing chocks of one of the roll-assemblies. This is preferably the rollassembly which is by-passed by the spacer rods.

The relative adjustment of the two roll-assemblies may be effected by additional hydraulic units which act direct on the bearing chocks of one of the roll-assemblies. This may be the roll-assembly whose bearing chocks are bypassed by the spacer rods. The relative adjustment of the roll-assemblies can then be changed by changing the volume of hydraulic fiuid in the hydraulic adjustment units. In order to make fine adjustments, the pressure fluid is taken from a separate cylinder having a piston which can be accurately displaced in either direction, e.g., by means of a motor-driven reduction gear which acts on the piston rod.

An embodiment of the present invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a section along line I--I of FIG. 2.

FIG. 2 is a front elevation of a rolling mill in accordance with the present invention.

The rolling mill illustrated in the drawings comprises two housings 10 and is fitted with two roll-assemblies, each including a working roll 11 and a backing roll 12. Means for pre-stressing the mill are arranged in the lower part of each housing and consist of a hydraulic cylinder 13 and a ram 14. The rams form part of the housings, and the cylinders are formed in blocks 15 which are displaceable and guided in Windows 16 of the respective housings 10. Another cylinder 17 of somewhat smaller size than the cylinder 13 is formed in each block 15, and a ram 18 is displaceable in each of the last-mentioned cylinders, a cylinder 17 and a ram 18 forming together a unit for the adjustment of the two roll-assemblies 11, 12 relative to each other. The rams 18 support bearing chocks 19 of the lower backing roll 12. These chocks are guided in the windows 16. The bearing chocks 29 of the upper backing roll 12 abut from below against the upper ends of the housings 10, blocks 21 being interposed between the bearing chocks 20 and the housings. The height of the blocks 21 may be adjustable for the initial setting of the roll-gap.

The bearing chocks 19 and 20 have recesses 22 and 23 at their ends facing each other, and bearing chocks 24 and 25 respectively for the working rolls 11 are accommodated in these recesses.

On either side of the hydraulic pressure unit 17, 18, pressure-responsive load cells 26 are placed on the block 15. Plain threadless rods 27 pass freely through and extend beyond the bearing chocks 19 of the lower backing roll and rest on top of the load cells 26. With their upper ends, the rods 27 abut against the bearing chocks 20.

Adjustment in height of the lower working roll 11, and therefore also of the opening between the two working rolls, is obtained by the admission or release of pressure fluid contained in the cylinders 17. As the rods 27 pass freely through the bearing chocks 19, the latter can move relatively to these rods during adjustment of the roll-gap.

Before rolling begins and when the rolling mill is prestressed by the units 13, 14, the pre-stressing force will be transmitted from these units to the blocks 15, from there to the load cells 26, to the spacer rods 27, to the bearing chocks 20, and to the top of the housings 10; at the same time, the reaction of the pre-stressing force will be transmitted directly from the rams 14 to the lower end of these housings. The spacer rods 27 have then to take the full pre-stressing force. As soon as rolling has started and a roll-separating force developed, the spacer rods have only to take the difference between the prestressing force and the roll-separating force, and this difference acts on the load meters.

The load-meters are preferably of the type having pressure-responsive cells in which changes in pressure are transformed into electric signals. These signals are utilised for controlling the pressure of the hydraulic units 13, 14 in a manner similar to that described in British patent speecification No. 955,164. The signals are fed into an amplifier 28 and from there to a servomotor 29 for a pressure relief valve 30. This valve is in a by-pass of a hydraulic line leading from a pump P to the cylinders 13 of the hydraulic pre-stressing units. The above-described control circuit, the relief valve and the pump P are common to the units 13, 14 of both housings 10.

An increase in the roll-separating force with a resulting decrease in the difference between the pre-stressing and the separating forces causes the pressure relief valve 30 to increase the pre-stressing force to the extent that the difference between the two forces is reduced to its former value. Conversely, a :drop in the separating force with a resulting increase in the difference between the pre-stressing and separating forces leads to a corresponding drop in the pre-stressing forces. In this way, the difference between the two forces and hence the compression of the spacer rods 27 can be maintained substantially constant throughout a rolling operation. As the compression of the spacer rods is indicative of the opening between the working rolls 11, this opening is thus kept constant.

To enable adjustment of the roll-gap to be made, the hydraulic fluid from the cylinders 17 is taken from one or more displacement cylinders 31 having a ram 32. The ram is threaded over a spindle 33 driven by a motor 34. Separate cylinders 31 and rams 32 may be arranged for each of the cylinders 17. In this way, it is possible to adjust the position of the rams 32 relative to the cylinders 31 with great accuracy, and thus to regulate within close limits the amount of pressure fluid contained in the cylinders 17. This, again, provides adjustment of the roll-gap between the working rolls 11 within close limits.

In the example shown and described, the two groups of hydraulic units 13, 14 and 17, 18 respectively are arranged in the lower part of the housings 10 where they are easily accessible for maintenance and other purposes. The pipes which supply hydraulic fluid to these units can also be kept relatively short. However, it is within the scope of the present invention to arrange the afore-mentioned units in the upper part of the housings 10. It is also possible, for instance, to arrange the hydraulic pre-stressing units 13,

14 in the lower parts of the housings and the units 17, 18 for the adjustment of the roll-gap in the upper part, or vice versa.

The invention can also be applied to rolling mills without backing rolls. In this case, the bearing checks for' the working rolls take the place of the bearing chocks for the backing rolls in the example described.
