Hot Working of Steel
For this purpose, the steel ingots are heated to the required temperature and the operation involved are the following:
- a. Rolling
- b. Forging
- c. Pressing
- d. Drawing
Of all the operations, rolling and drawing are the most important operations. Rolling is carried in specially prepared mils. The red hot ingots are passed through different rollers until articles of the desired shapes like I, L or angles are got.
In drawing, the metal is drawn through different dies and specially shaped tools. It is with this process that the reinforcement roads are prepared.
