Rolling

This is normally carried out on a continuous line, either by rolling direct from coil (see 'Steel profiled cladding' p. 96) or by rolling separate sheets.There is no limit to the length of the final product other than that governed by handling or transport (normally I 3 m).

S.S Typical rolling line.

Simple rolling lines are possible for thinner gauges of metal (up to I mm), but more complex profiles for long-span cladding need fixed-stand machines (Fig. 5.5).
