Roll bonding is a well-known process to produce composite sheet metals. Transferring this principle to ring rolling would allow to produce seamless radial composite rings, which combine the advantages of different material properties. This process is studied, both experimentally and using FEM-simulation. For the FEM an explicit model is applied including the kinematic control algorithms of the radial-axial ring rolling machine. In the used model the occurrence of unexpected asymmetrical joints
