ROLLING OF METAL( auxiliary operations used in connection with metal-working operations covered in B21 , see B21C ; bending by rolling B21D ; manufacture of particular objects, e.g. screws, wheels, rings, barrels, balls, by rolling B21H ; pressure welding by means of a rolling mill B23K 20/04 )
NOTE
-
In this subclass, the following terms or expressions are used with the meanings indicated:- "rolling" means rolling operations in which plastic deformations occur;- "continuous process" means a process employing a mill train designed to have the workpiece enter one pair of rolls before leaving the preceding pair.
