Quiz Questions

1.Measurement of flatness, especially for thin sheet, is often made in terms of:
“I” units
2. Longitudinal bow is usually caused by :
Bad handling of the roll during the shipping

3.Arbor buckles are caused by plastic bending over a coil and in contact with:
The mandrel
The longitude edge laying underneath the roll
The cross edge laying underneath the roll
4. Bond blisters are caused by:
Expansion of gas from a localized incomplete bond
Rolling against the material grain direction
Dropping the roll during the shipping
5.Burr is :
Rolled surface rubbing against each other
A thin ridge of roughness left by a cutting operation such as slitting, trimming, shearing, blanking or sawing
6.Repeating dent on a roll can be caused by a particle adhering to a rotating roll across which the metal has passed.
7. Edge containing crack, split, and/or tear which is caused by;
defective material
