Investigations were carried out on the direct applicability of a set of grooves of multi-roll wire mills for different materials having different stress-strain curves. Special evaluation was made on the stability of the geometry among different materials when rolled under the same mill setting conditions. Influence of inter-stand tension generated by the change in roll force due to the difference in stress-strain curve was studied both numerically and experimentally. A group of three-roll and four-roll-type mills is superior to two-roll-type mill in getting rid of the time for mill setting.
