Casting Roll Bearing
Vol. 19 #1, Feb. 1992

To maintain sheet gauge control, roll bearings must be in good condition. When bearing problems are suspected on the center (stationary) casting roll, there is a simple procedure for checking it.

Put a .0001" indicator on top of the center roll. Put a brass or wood spacer in the lower nip and close the lower roll. The center roll should not move.
