This training will teach you how to setup cases for rolling with incremental approach as well as with the iterative stationary approach. You will also be able to identify centering type faults.


rolling long product trainingRolling is used for the production of long products (profiles or tubes) or flat products (plates or sheets) formed from various materials (steel, aluminum or titanium alloy). With FORGE®, it is possible to simulate these two types of manufacturing processes as well as the tube rolling used in the nuclear or oil industry. There are two types of approaches. The so-called  "incremental” approach makes it possible to check the conformity of the rolled profiles, detect defects of the centering or torsion type at the entry of the bars and determine the volume of drop-offs. The so-called “stationary iterative” approach used for hot rolling makes it possible to quickly simulate the rolling mill and evaluate inter-cage tensions. During this training, you will discover how to set up data for cases of rolling in the incremental approach as well as in the stationary iterative approach. You will also know how to identify defects of the centering type. You will thus be able to effectively and accurately simulate the rolling processes.


  • Data setup for rolling cases with an incremental approach
  • Analyzing and interpreting computation results (deformation, change in temperature, etc.)
  • Identifying defects of the centering or torsion type at the entry of the bars
  • Understanding the stationary approach implemented in FORGE®
  • Validating the characteristics of the rolling mill, for example the required number of roll stands, the initial inlet speed, the reduction rate per pass, the temperature and the rotational speed of the cylinders, the friction conditions, etc.
