Strips Are Rolled

Once the long, thin strips of extruded metal have cooled, they are trimmed using a hydraulic shearer and prepared for rolling. A highly precise instrument called a micrometer is used to calibrate the precise thickness of each strip of metal. Next, the strips are individually fed into a high-pressure rolling machine and gathered for the next step in the process. After each strip has been rolled, it is inspected to ensure that it meets the specifications for thickness.

After the strips have been rolled, they are then sent to the blanking machine.
