The ZS Sheet mill, also known as the Type 1-2 mill, is used as a mill for rolling sheets. It produces material with a superior gauge tolerance to that obtained on conventional mills.

How the ZS Sheet Mill Works

Sendzimir Inc.’s ZS Sheet mills utilize two driven work rolls and four backing bearing assemblies enclosed in the rigid and compact Sendzimir housing.

The ZS mills have a secondary crown adjustment at each backing assembly saddle. These are power-operated for changing the shape of the sheet at various points across the width of the sheet. Screwdown is controlled by two hydraulic cylinders located at the operator and drive side.

ZS Sheet Warm Rolling Abilities

ZS Sheet mills can be engineered to allow for the warm rolling of materials that are either difficult or undesirable to roll cold. Such mills have been designed to accommodate materials to be rolled at temperatures up to approximately 600ºF (315ºC), with the mill temperature being maintained at approximately 300ºF (150ºC). Going even further, Sendzimir technology anticipates working with higher temperatures when paired with newly developed lubricants.
