Roll Grinders/Turners generally work in steel manufacturing and metal production companies. Customers (like automotive manufacturers) often require that metal be specific size and thickness, so the metal is heated and rolled through machines that flatten them to half the previous size. A Roll Grinder/Turner measures and grinds the metal when it comes off the rollers, repeating the process until the steel is just the right thickness.
