X-Pact® Camber Free Rolling

Challenges

  • Thickness wedges and asymmetric heating in the slab may form cambers

Solution

  • Effective interplay between the heavy side guides in front and behind the Roughing Mill and the control system for camber and wedge free rolling

Technical advantages

  • Cost saving – due to increased yield
  • Improved strip geometry - Camber and wedge reduced to a minimum
  • Improved process stability / reduced amount of cobbles in the FM due to better strip guidance

Productivity

  • Improved process stability and reduced cobbles in the Finishing Mill due to better strip guidance
  • Increased yield by 0,5-3 %
