Additional scalping of the ingot edges is the ideal way to not only save even more material, but also achieve better operational reliability in downstream production. Here, the edge scalpers are arranged inline with ingot surface scalpers.
Edge scalper designs:
- Single-side edge scalper
- Double-side edge scalper
Edge scalping reduces trimming scrap. It means less strip width needs to be removed after the hot rolling process. Furthermore, you reduce the risk of edge cracking during hot rolling.
