Moreover, for the roller surface, especially the contact interface with the roller, because the thermal phenomena, such as heat conduction between the high temperature workpiece and the roller of low temperature, heat convection and radiation between the workpiece and the surrounding environment (air cooling), and forced heat convection with water (water cooling or descaling stage), occurs, and these factors also make the minimum temperature occur at the contact interface.
