The Waterbury Farrel Sendzimir Rolling Mill is the final answer to the need for highly precise, close-tolerance rolled products. Extensive experience in the area has led to the perfecting of these hydraulically-loaded, gauge-controlled mills for a variety of applications.
The Waterbury Farrel Z-mill (Cluster-Type) is the most flexible and powerful of its kind. Used to roll both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, the Z-Mill is designed to make heavy reductions at high speeds. The 20-Hi roll cluster contains 12 rolls and eight backing bearing assemblies. A rigid, compact mill housing eliminates deflection of work rolls and produces a uniformly close gauge tolerance strip. Waterbury Farrel supplies 20-Hi Mills in either reversing or one-way operations.
Waterbury Farrel developed and patented the Sendzimir (Z-mill) in 1938. All patents and trademarks remain exclusive to Waterbury Farrel to this day. As the original and sole developer of Z-mill technology, Waterbury Farrel is proud of its role in reshaping both the rolling mill industry and improving the quality of strip produced worldwide.
Our latest Sendzimir Mill design features the Double As-U-Roll Crown Control and a redesigned housing, eliminating structural weaknesses through optimization by Finite Element Analysis.
