Skin pass 2-Hi mills
Skin pass 2-Hi mills are mainly used for stainless steel. This skin pass mill is designed for the high cleanness requirement that high-quality strips demand, particularly its roll polishing system and double acting hydraulic cylinder for the roll force. A common aim in our designs is the easy access to all sections of the machine for simple and effective operation and maintenance.

This skin pass mill is designed for a variety of steel products, from very low to very high strength, with two ranges of work rolls diameter and a high-performance roll cleaning system.
Skin pass 6-Hi mills
Skin pass 6-Hi mills are mainly used in continuous annealing lines. With the two additional intermediate rolls, this skin pass mill can produce better flatness under any operating conditions. It is especially flexible, both in terms of all the grades processed and the widths, thicknesses and production speed. It comes with two work roll diameter ranges and is equipped with shifting system for the intermediate rolls able to move under load.
Tandems skin pass mills
Ideally suited for carbon steel rolling lines, Fives also offers solutions to integrate Single Reduction (SR) or Double Reduction (DR) skin pass mill tandems into production lines. These mills can operate in wet or dry conditions depending on the customer's application.
Roll change cars for all skin pass mills
The modern design of this system allows rolls to go through the mill stand. Combined with a fast roll changer car, this design is the ideal system for a fast and effective roll change and is particularly well adapted to in-line Skin-Pass Mills.
