Hot Strip Mill

A rolling mill of several stands of rolls that converts slabs into hot rolled coils. The hot strip mill squeezes slabs, which can range in thickness from 2 10 inches, depending on the type of continuous caster, between horizontal rolls with a progressively smaller space between them(while vertical rolls govern the width) to produce a coil of flat rolled steel about a quarter inch in thickness and a quarter mile in length.
