From the Floor – Thick Wall Cylinder Rolling

When customers face big challenges they search for a supplier of big ideas and big solutions. AT&F recently rolled nearly 9” thick flat plates into cylinders for just such a customer. The pressure vessel shell segments are a combination of 1/4" thick 304 Stainless Steel plate and 8 ½” thick carbon steel backer plate fused by the explosion cladding process. AT&F used the largest plate roll in North America to roll the thick flat plate into cylinder segments in just a few hours at its headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.
