What are the common cold roll heat treatment methods?

The heat treatment of cold rolls has a significant impact on key performance indicators such as mechanical properties, hardness, toughness and wear resistance. The correct heat treatment can not only increase the service life of the cold rolls, but also ensure the quality and stability of the rolled product.
Common cold roll heat treatment methods include:
1. Quenching treatment: This is to heat the cold roll above the critical point, and then cool it quickly to increase its hardness and strength. The quenching process is effective for the wear resistance and fatigue resistance of the rising product.
2. Tempering treatment: This is to heat the quenched product to a lower temperature again to stabilize its structure and remove internal stress. The tempering process can improve the toughness and impact resistance of the product.
3. Carburizing treatment: This is to infiltrate carbon atoms into the surface of the product to increase its surface hardness and wear resistance. Carburizing is often used for products that require high wear resistance.
4. Nitriding treatment: This is to infiltrate nitrogen atoms into the surface of the product to form a layer of nitride with high hardness, thereby increasing its wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
In addition, there are specific heat treatments, such as vacuum heat treatment, ion implantation, etc., which can further improve the performance and service life of cold rolls.
When choosing the heat treatment method, it is necessary to consider comprehensively according to the specific requirements and use conditions of the cold roll. At the same time, in order to ensure the quality and effect of heat treatment, it is also necessary to strictly control the process parameters of heat treatment, such as heating temperature, cooling rate, holding time, etc.
