Experiments were conducted to measure the effects of roll pressure and roll rpm on the magnitude and variation of the coefficient of friction in the roll gap in cold strip rolling. Two aluminum alloys (1100-T0 and 5052-H34) were used in the experiments. Roll pressures were found not to affect the frictional coefficients in a significant manner. Speed of rolling was identified as the most important parameter as far as the values of μ are concerned. Increased speeds appeared to lower the values of the average coefficient of friction.
