      Can you be more specific with your question?

      Are you looking for someone to design the machine for you?

      The plate rollers i have seen have a very low rpm, maybe between 4 and 6. If it is 1mm thick sheet the drive can be about 0.5HP motor with a reduction gearbox to give a final output of 4-6 rpm.

      Well the speed is low on the one I observed. I suppose it gives the material to be rolled enough time to deform without large spring-back. the diameter of the rolls could be 150mm, and the length depends on the length of your component. It should be longer by about 25-30%.

      Why don't you share the problem statement as given to you by your instructor?
