Planetary Mill

Planetary Mill

The Planetary Mill was developed in 1954 and gave T. Sendzimir, Inc. its 29th patent. A total of 26 Planetary mills have been built to date.

The term "planetary" is derived from the arrangement of the rolls around the periphery of each backing roll – a plurality of working rolls are arranged as satellites.

The Planetary Mill is capable for taking as much as a 97% reduction of hot or warm slabs in a single pass.
