When machining rolls that are in operation in plate mills, absolute precision is essential. Due to roll weights of up to 300 t and roll lengths of up to 10 m achieving this is a great challenge for machine tools.
With a wealth of know-how acquired over the course of many decades, Herkules roll grinders are tailored specifically to the requirements of plate mills. In order to guarantee highly precise machining results, these machines are designed to ensure the highest stability and the best damping characteristics. The grinding wheel is equipped with a hydrodynamic spindle bearing, which allows for a maximum stock removal rate.
