What is plate rolling?

Plate rolling is a roller, or multiple rollers, that metal plates get fed into in order to achieve a uniform thickness or reduce the thickness of a particular piece of metal. The type of rolling is based on the temperature of the metal, the two types are cold rolling and hot rolling.

One of the most popular forms of plate rolling is rolling out cones. Cones can be used in A/C ductwork as fixed pattern diffusers. Fixed pattern diffusers are the A/C vents that you see in the ceilings of commercial buildings. They are metal plates that have been rolled and stacked to create the vent itself.
