Material temperature capability is up to 1300°C and includes a detachable run-out cooling table capable of accelerated cooling conditions (20°C/s for 10mm thick plate).

This mill also includes internal cartridge heaters for heating the mill rolls up to 400°C. This reduces the temperature loss of the heated material during the rolling process.
