Basically, the mill stand with drive consists of:
The drive system is carried out by one controlled DC motor via safety clutch, pinion bevel spur gearing and articulated spindles to the working rolls of the mill stand.
The mill stand can be shifted on the housing of the drive unit so that it can be coupled with the articulated spindles and the coupling. The electric spindle lifting device permits vertical movement of the mill stand. When it is in its working position, the mill stand is fixed with the clamping devices so that it is firmly seated on the housing.
In the working position, the coupling connection for utility supply (water and oil) of the mill stand is established automatically. The shifting device serves for shifting the mill stand during stand change. The change is carried out with help of the workshop crane.
