The article exposes contemporary materials and structures for metallurgy. Feasible increase of dynamic forces on the rolling machinery during rolling of billets with masses up to 20 t (Stand No.1 of CWM 1700 HR, «U.S. Steel Košice», Košice, Slovakia, and PJSC «Illich MMPP», Mariupol, Ukraine) is discussed. It is proved that weight of billet, velocities of metal delivery to working rolls and rolling significantly influence the dynamic loads during metal biting. The technical solutions are suggested which would allow the steady rolling process of billets with masses up to 20 t and prevent accidental failures of frame parts, chocks and main lines. © 2016 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
