Complete listing of the cast-iron rolls is in the standard of KD FOUNDRY Králův Dvůr, s.r.o..Any specific requirements of the customer concerning the material, heat treatment are expressed in detail and included in the purchase contract.We also supply other cast-iron rolls made of materials according to the customer’s specification, to be used in paper industry, rubber industry and food-processing industry.
Packing and conservation
Each finished roll is effectively equipped, during transport and storage, with a suitable protection against corrosion and mechanical damage. Finished necks and the ground surfaces of the necks are protected with insulation coats. The protection is also combined with protective formwork made of wooden or plywood strips secured with metal band. Upon the customer’s request it is also possible to use special pallets or boxes.
Checking the quality of the rolls and shaped castings
In order to ensure the quality of the rolls and shaped castings according to ISO 9001 the following inter-operation tests are performed during the production::
  • Test of the chemical composition of the metal during meltage
  • Test of the chemical composition of the liquid metal prior to casting – final test
  • Breaking test for the hardened layer
  • Breaking test for graphitization
  • Test to assess the nodulation of the nodular cast iron
  • Test of the chemical composition of the metal during casting – the data is recorded in the documentation of the roll and the shaped castings
  • Sample collection from the roll during machining – metallographic evaluation of the specific hardness of the roll –Equotip hardness tester


Method and provision of the transport are provided according to the customer’s requirements according to INCOTERMS 2000.

Payment and technical terms
Payment and technical terms are part of the purchase contract as per the particular case.
