From the thinnest sheet to the thickest plate JMT has your number in plate rolling machines. In 3 roll and 4 roll, hand crank to the most powerful variable axis (variable geometry) plate rolling machines available to the industry, JMT is your source for the longest lasting most accurate equipment on the market today. If massive is your mindset JMT is your source. With widths as narrow as 3 foot 4 inches to widths as wide as 13 foot 5 inches your sheet will probably fall in there somewhere. With thickness capacities as thin as 18 gauge to thickness capacities as thick as 6 inches, you will begin to realize JMT is you’re one stop source for plate rolling machines of any description. JMT has worked with our manufacturing partner to “fine tune” these plate rolls to our specification and to the pinnacle of their development. The mechanism of the 4 roll and 3 roll machines offers quick and effectual production of thick to medium plates including stainless steel and other difficult to roll materials.
On our 4 roll plate rolling machines, the top roll of the 4 rolls moves in a fixed rotation while the lower roll secures the plate in position and moves in a vertical motion. The lateral rolls can be adjusted according to the desired shape by choosing a single or double roll for processing. Utilizing the 4 rolls as opposed to other plate roller types, the constant pinching mechanism assists in preventing slippage which also makes it a choice which increases overall safety, while the roll is in operation. . Those who are familiar with plate roll machinery, understand that the quality of production is imperative to the density of the plate rolls. Which is why our rolls are always composed of induction hardened steel that allow a rolling range from 10 gauge to 6 inches.
The JMT 3 roll hydraulic plate rolls are machines just as packed with features as our 4 roll machines, but at a considerable cost savings. This range of plate rolls encompasses 6 foot 8 inches width capacity to 13 foot 5 inch capacity, with a thickness range of one quarter inch to one and three eights inch thickness. Main standard features of the 3 roll machines are; touch screen control with 4 multi-pass d.r.o.’s, dual speed control, cone bending, hardened steel rolls made of 4140 steel hardened to 58 RC. Also included in the standard features are; a heavy duty machines base induction welded with stress relieved welds, side rolls are electronically positioned and synchronized by a p.l.c. and high end precision digital scales. Automatic roll peripheral speed compensation, providing optimum distribution of torque among all 3 rolls. All rolls are seated in spherical bearings, top roll hydraulic opening device (drop end) creates an easy “pull out system.” Side rolls up to 17.4 inches are hydraulic motor driven while side rolls larger than 14.7 inches are come standards with rectilinear guides driven with a combination of hydraulic motors and planetary gear boxes.
