In the rolling mills for sheet metal rolling, paper rolling and etc., the impurities of roller surface have crucial effects on the surface quality of the products obtained by rolling. The Roll Cleaner is a device to remove impurities on roller surface during a rolling operation. Nip Pressure means the line pressure interacted between the roll cleaner blade and the roller surface. The nip pressure is the most important parameter which decides the performance of roll cleaner, and it depends upon several factors including the cleaner design and its blade stiffness. This study, first, analyzes the mechanism of the nip pressure generation for a roll cleaner designed commercially, which is an crucial process for effective design of roll cleaners. Second, the technique for the measurement of nip pressure is developed, which is useful to verify the performance of roll cleaners and to setup them properly at factory floor.
