Roll Turner

At rolling mills, metals are shaped by passing heated metal blocks back and forth between the specially formed rolls of a mill stand, until the desired shape and length have been obtained.  The roll turner forms and shapes these sets of rolls by means of a lathe and specially prepared tools such as templates (patterns) until they conform to the specified shape.  Working from a blueprint the roll turner clamps a steel block in a giant lathe and cuts the desired grooves into the steel block, using cutting tools.  You will constantly check the shape and size of the grooves on the roll against a template (pattern).  In this way you will manufacture the rolls to be used in rolling mills to shape other steel blocks.<!–?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /–>
