Paper Title:
Influence of Roll Speed Schedule on Continuous Tube Rolling Process of Semi-Floating Mandrel Mill
  Abstract

In continuous tube rolling process, it has an obvious influence on the stability of rolling process, tools wear and the quality of rolled hollow tube that configuration of roll rotational speed per stand. In this paper, various roll working diameters per stand are determined by velocity integral method (VIT) and FEM respectively, and two roll rotational speed schedules are obtained correspondingly based on 133 main pass sequence of 89mm 6-stand semi-floating mandrel mill. With the aid of commercial FE code MSC.SuperForm, the high pressure boiler steel tube continuous rolling process of a typical hollow tube specification 133.0×5.2mm are simulated, and force parameters, transverse wall thickness precision, outline dimension and real roundness of rolled hollow tube and clearance between the mandrel and rolled hollow tube are analyzed and compared on the condition of two different roll rotational speed schedules, which provides scientific basis for configuring reasonable roll rotational speed per stand in pass design and optimization. Analysis results indicate that roll working diameter obtained per stand is smaller and roll rotational speed configured is higher correspondingly using FEM compared to VIT. Using FEM, there exist front and back tensions between stands and maximal rolling force, rolling moment and mandrel axial force decrease 10% or so in continuous tube rolling process, and outline dimension and real roundness of rolled hollow tube is better. However, transverse wall thickness of rolled hollow tube at the bottom of groove is pulled thin slightly, and clearance between the mandrel and rolled hollow tube is less than normal.
