Outline of re-birth CPC roll

The work roll of a hot-strip mill is generally scrapped after the use of the discarding diameter. Thus, the re-birth of CPC rolls is a novel idea in which the scrapped roll from a customer can be re-birthed as a new roll.

In this method, the shell of the barrel that contacts the rolled product is re-cast using the CPC process.

Furthermore, a scrapped roll is re-birthed as a new roll by welding the journal, and this is supplied to the customer. This re-birth of work roll is an original technology acheived through the synergy of FUJICO's hardfacing technologies.

An overview of this re-birth of roll process is shown in the figure at right. A roll manufactured with this technology demonstrates the same performance as a new remanufactured CPC roll in all characteristics regarding wear resistance, surface roughening resistance, and toughness.

Achievement of a full recycling system for work rolls

The roll recycling system is achieved by re-using a used roll as core material.

Birth of environmentally-friendly eco-rolls

The recycling system for rolls and a reduction of CO2 emissions is achieved by this technology. Further, this roll type was authorized as an "eco-premium product" in FY2009 by Kitakyushu City.
This new roll is simply an ecotype roll, and it contributes to the most important current social requirement. This re-birth of CPC roll has realized a high-performance roll with economical cost and price, and this technology has established a full recycling system for work rolls with a 55% savings of CO2 emissions.
