An electron beam texturing (EBT) machine has been developed by Linotype-Hell AG and Sidmar NV for the controlled texturing of cold mill rolls. The machine makes use of an electron gun, which is easily modulated and performs in a highly reproducible way. This machine combines the precision of an electron microscope with the productivity of an electron beam welder. A fully automated system was constructed minimizing the number of operators and excluding human errors. The method has been applied to both tandem mill rolls and temper mill rolls.
