Description: This is a schematic image of the rolling process. In rolling material is passed through the gap between two rotating rollers that squeeze the material as it passes between them. The rolled material emerges with a thickness roughly equal to the gap between the rollers. When the rollers are cylindrical, rolling produces material in the form of plate or sheet.
