Roll Shop

Everything from one single source

Planning, designing, manufacturing and installation from one single source – if you need more than a highly productive stand-alone roll grinder and EDT machine, WaldrichSiegen is your partner for the supply of a complete roll shop. As a first step, WaldrichSiegen works out a detailed analysis and project study for a semiautomatic or fully automatic roll shop, taking into consideration the required degree of automation, available floor space and manpower. The simulation-based analysis calculates and evaluates all roll movements through all stations of the roll shop. This way, we can rule out any potential bottlenecks in advance and guarantee the ideal choice of machines as well as staff and set-up requirements.

If you already have a roll shop in service, WaldrichSiegen analyzes existing processes and shows where disruptive factors in the workflow can be eliminated.

As an option, all components of the roll shop can be combined to form one single network with the help of the Roll Shop Management System (RSMS) by HCC/KPM. From the machines to the Level 3 system, information is collected and provided by the system. In its most comprehensive form, the roll shop is completely automated – the loaders load and unload automatically, and the machines and machining processes start automatically.

Training in proven WaldrichSiegen quality

Following installation and commissioning of a roll shop, WaldrichSiegen offers intensive training for operator and maintenance personnel. Training takes place either at your facility or at our headquarters in Siegen/Germany. Furthermore, service contracts and teleservice guarantee optimal maintenance of your roll shop at all times.
