We Just Shipped Out 2 50" Shapemeters This Week!


Sendzimir's Low-Cost Shapemeter Design

Is optimized as a low-cost but incredibly accurate and sensitive shapemeter for a mill. This design also uses static load cells so signal transmission is simple and reliable. The housing is very narrow and can fit into a limited space. Due to the design of the rollers, there is very little "cross-talk" between adjacent load zones.

T. Sendzimir, Inc. can help you with your

mill installation or relocation!

Since the equipment on large mills is heavy, a customer does not usually have the means or ability to install it. Normally an outside company is hired for the mill erection. Here the T. Sendzimir, Inc. service department can give instructions and advice on any and all of the mechanical aspects.

Our engineers know the subtle details of installing a Sendzimir mill - details that even the mill builder may not know. Certain components must be assembled in specific ways, paying careful attention to the details. If the assembly is not done properly, problems may arise further down the road. This is one of the instances where the expertise of the T. Sendzimir, Inc. service department comes in.

Sendzimir's mill installation service can include supervision of an entire installation or periodic advisory visits. Usually, our services are called for when an installation is nearing completion. Our service engineers will review crucial questions with the builders and management to ascertain that nothing has been overlooked, and will run classes for the foreman, operators, helpers, and roll grinding operators.

We don't just do installations, we also provide your company with training!

The two major stages in the process to get your mill to rolling condition is:

1) Installation supervision

2) Training operators on rolling

Our service department will be on site to train your staff on how to properly use your new mill to guarantee you will be rolling the best quality strip. Our goal is to help your company succeed!

Used Equipment and Relocations

Sometimes the customer will purchase a used mill and will ask T. Sendzimir, Inc. for help to put the mill into operation. This may consist of the same as described above for a new mill. The difference will be to carefully check all the parts, to see if they are in useable condition and if they are within tolerances. If certain parts are in poor condition we would advise whether or not to replace and/or rebuild them.

Would New Wipers Help Your Strip?

If you are struggling with producing a quality finish on your rolling mill, it might be time to look into a wiping system that can help your mill to produce that quality finish you are looking for. With a Sendzimir Pollastrelli Wiping System, you can accomplish just that!

Top features of the Sendzimir Pollastrelli Wiping System are:

-Made of M1 Steel

-Rolls are backed up across their width so they can be made smaller in diameter

-Wipe more effectively

-If rolls are ground down every month they will last 10 years


4-Roll Wiping System

-Flexible coolant dam

-Air blow-offs

-Multiple Pollastrelli Wipers

-Reliable, effective and low maintenance

-Reduces strip temperature

-Heavy springs allows wiper rolls to effectively remove oils and debris

-Strip is flat through the wiping system

-Each roll set is on the same vertical centerline

-Ability to set higher pressures between rolls

-System can be customized according to your exact mill size

3-Roll Wiping System

-Heavier intermediates gauges-greater than 0.015" (0.4mm)

-Lighter springs so the wiper roll does not flex significantly

-Strip bends to the upper rolls for the top surface and the lower roll for the bottom surface (each surface is independently wiped)

-Removes metal slivers before they can be embedded in the strip

-Can be customized according to your exact mill size

Upgrade Your Mill With A Z-High® Insert!

Sendzimir Can Retrofit Your 4-High Into A Z-High®

A Retrofit to your current 4-High Mill can have many advantages:

With the ever tightening product quality standards imposed upon producers of steel and non-ferrous strip today, as well as the requirement for increased production of existing mills, many companies are considering the purchase of new equipment to replace aging 4-High mills and upgrade their capability. However, the ever increasing capital costs involved with the purchase of new Cold Rolling Mills, often either prevents or indefinitely postpones such a project. Companies who can benefit from this new design are those that need to roll to increasingly thinner gauges that their existing 4-Highs cannot currently achieve, or, situations where newer High Strength Alloys need to be rolled that the existing 4-High cannot roll, cost effectively. The addition of the Z-High® insert should open up new sales areas and profit possibilities.

Press Release

Announcing Cooperation Between T. Sendzimir, Inc. and Bearing Service Co. of PA

Bearing Service Co. of PA (BSC) and T. Sendzimir, Inc. (TSINC) announced today a mutual cooperative agreement to market and support each other to better service the steel industry. This industry has been lacking a single source to assist with all backing assembly related services. Clients will no longer need to contact two or more vendors to assist with bearing or saddle repair.

The cooperative agreement between BSC and TSINC provides clients with expertise required in both bearings and backing assemblies. Any client requiring backing assembly services can send their complete backing assemblies, with bearings, to either company. BSC and TSINC will coordinate the logistics to have your bearings and saddles evaluated, inspected, and replaced or repaired as required.

Leaders in their chosen fields, this cooperative agreement finally provides the steel industry with the best combination of bearing and backing assembly support the market has ever seen.

“We are proud to announce that we are now a full service company for both bearings and backing assemblies”, announced Bill Banks of Bearing Service Co. of PA.
