Ring rolling

Ring rolling is an established metal forming process for high strength metal rings used in industrial sectors such as aerospace, electricity generation and oil and gas extraction. Currently it is not possible to produce shaped rings without dedicated tooling for each part, often leading to wasted material, energy and machining cost. Work on Ring Rolling within the Use Less group has focused on ways to produce a wider range of ring shapes with a single 'flexible' tool set.
