Guide & Roll Pass Training

Practical Training


The objective of this course is to train participants on proper guide maintenance and service techniques, thus helping maximize the guiding performance potential. The training includes guiding fundamentals and also an in-depth look into the theory behind them.

Guides can be one of the most under-appreciated and subjective pieces of equipment in a rolling mill. At the same time, roll pass is often seen as a mysterious practice that only a select few can fully grasp. To facilitate a better understanding of both topics, this course will lead participants through a full exploration of fundamentals, concepts, theories and design. Course modules begin with basic concepts and definitions and then progress to more complex theory, working examples and hands-on training. With a more complete understanding of roll pass and guides, participants gain the confidence to apply their new skills and help maximize the performance of their mill.

Guide training courses are offered on-demand basis and are tailored to the specific needs and equipment of the attendees. Training can be held at either one of Primetals Technologies facilities or at the customer’s facility.
