MPI takes delivery of an experimental rolling mill

The Materials Processing Institute (MPI) has taken delivery of an experimental rolling mill which will be a key piece of equipment in its Advanced Materials Development Centre. 

This rolling mill has been supplied by International Rolling Mills based in the USA. This rolling mill investment is to support client-led research requirements in the Institute’s Thermomechanical Treatment Laboratory in its Advanced Materials Development Centre. The rolling mill will be used to support materials analysis and development by evaluating the effect of rolling on a material’s microstructure by deforming materials at a high temperature to create a wrought microstructure to help improve the materials’ mechanical properties. 

The final phase of the installation will be in-situ commissioning and testing. 

The rolling mill is being installed as part of the Materials Processing Institute’s multi-million-pound investment programme in state-of-the-art machinery and equipment as part of the PRISM Programme. 

PRISM is a Programme of Research and Innovation for the UK Steel and Metals sector, providing funding to support innovation in decarbonisation, digital technologies, and circular economy.
