Roughing Mill

A roughing mill is a large rolling mill stand that is designed for making reductions in material thickness. The first rolling stand(s) in the hot rolling process is a roughing mill. Once reduced by the roughing stand(s), the metal continues to the finishing stands where less thickness reduction occurs, and the material is rolled to the final, desired thickness.
