Overview : Three-roller plate rolling machine operating procedures

plate rolling machine

Plate rolling machine is a general equipment for bending metal sheets into cylindrical, arc-shaped or other shaped workpieces. According to the principle of three points forming a circle, the relative position change and rotational motion of the workpiece are used to make the plate produce continuous plastic deformation to obtain a predetermined shape of the workpiece.

Three-roller plate rolling machine is a kind of plate rolling machine currently used. Using the principle of three-roller rolling, the plate is bent into a circle, cone or arc. The characteristics of this plate rolling machine are simple and compact structure, light weight, easy to manufacture and maintain, low investment, and the rollers on both sides can be made very close.

Three-roller plate rolling machine operating procedures

An important point in operating a plate rolling machine is standardization and safety.

  1. The operator should understand the structure and performance of the machine, be familiar with the operation process of the system, and strictly abide by the operating procedures.
  2. Before the machine is running, check whether the lubrication is sufficient.
  3. When multiple people work together to operate the plate rolling machine, there must be a dedicated person to direct.
  4. When the machine is running, if an abnormal fault condition is found, it should be stopped immediately to check whether the transmission parts are loose or damaged.
  5. It is not allowed to roll the steel plate directly on the machine tool without flattening the weld and leveling.
  6. The main rotation and auxiliary rotation cannot be carried out at the same time, that is, the rotation of the lower roller and the lifting and lowering movement of the upper roller cannot be carried out at the same time.
  7. Check the reducer fixing screws and top screws frequently to tighten them.
  8. The electrical system should be checked and dusted regularly, and the failed components should be replaced on time. Pay attention to check whether the grounding wire is firm.
  9. The equipment is strictly prohibited from overloading. After the work is completed, the power supply must be disconnected, and lubricating oil must be added to the guide rail and blade position.


When using the plate rolling machine, be sure to follow the plate rolling machine operating procedures. Three-roller plate rolling machines are widely used in shipbuilding, boilers, aviation, hydropower, chemical industry, metal structure and machinery manufacturing industries.
