COOLING BED

A Long-Products Cooling Bed is an essential piece of equipment in every steel mill that produces a variety of different products in a varying lengths. A typical product range would be rebar, rounds, squares, angles, channels & flats. 

Our Aligning Rolls are being used in many steel mills throughout North America. GMB Heavy Industries has many variations of Aligning Roll designs, such as:

ALIGNING ROLLS 1
  • Single Drive multi-notch roll.
  • Individually driven single notch roll.
  • Combination roll that has driven and singles on the same shafts.

GMB HEAVY INDUSTRIES ALIGNING ROLLS TECHNOLOGY

Our Cooling Beds include Aligning Roll designs that minimize over spinning of product on multi notch rolls. Overspinning causes scratches on the product, resulting in a decreased price/ton.

A Long-products Cooling Bed consists of different parts and Aligning Rolls are one of the critical sections. Aligning Rolls are positioned at the exit side of the Cooling Bed to align the nose of the bars for consistent product alignment entering the Shear.

These rolls are Chain-Driven by Gear Motors and position product up to the end stop. Perfectly aligned bars entering the Shear greatly increases the yield. This system prevents loss of tonnage due to miss-alignment of product going into the Shear or Saws.

GMB Heavy Industries offers turn-key solutions with our North American based in-house design, engineering, manufacturing and installation. If your current efficiencies are lower than industry standard, GMB can offer you a custom solution to improve your yield. We pride ourselves with being a leading supplier in the North American steel mill industry knowing that our custom-designed solutions are integrated throughout many steel mills.
