Experimental Evaluation of Material Rollability in Profile Rolling


Article Preview

This paper aims at presenting an experimental investigation to compare the rolling behaviors of selected materials under profile rolling process. Copper alloy (C37700), aluminum alloy (AA6063) and stainless steel (AISI304) in 6 mm diameter were selected as rolling specimens. The process parameters, i.e. spindle speed, forward speed, and fractorgraphic analysis were carried out to determine the deformation behaviours of selected materials. The outcomes of this investigation are valuable for engineers to design and fabricate high-quality precision components efficiently.
