Development of compound work rolls for hot mill finishing stands by Laser-cladding (Laser4rolls)

The objective is to develop a new compound work roll system for the HSM finishing stands by exploiting the advantages of the laser-cladding to overlay a reusable steel arbour with a thick layer (20 mm) of enhanced tool steel materials. Key points are to define the system requirements, laser cladding trials, modelling and materials evaluation. Modelling of the laser-cladding process, of abrasive wear and of thermal treatment combined with NDT measurements for a sound layer and bonding zone will lead to recommendations for this new processing route.
