English term or phrase: pinch rolls vs cast pinch rolls
Hallo,
I would like to know what is the difference between pinch rolls and cast pinch rolls here. It is a text about improving service life of caster rolls etc. by weld cladding them. I have included the part of the text where both terms appear:
"Other larger or heavier items, such as pinch rolls, primary mill rolls and edger rolls, or items with a high C content, or that have base materials that are difficult to weld, such as cast pinch rolls may require special materials and equipment."

Thanks in advance for your help.
