X-Pact® Advanced Thickness Control

Challenges

  • Minimization of off-gauge lengths
  • Minimization of thickness disturbances

Solution

  • Volume flow control system entry and exit thickness gauges incl. precise entry and exit speed measurement
  • Friction change compensation at acceleration and deceleration phases
  • Strip hardness change compensation during rolling

Technical advantages

  • Stable rolling process
  • Improved, operator independent rolling process

Quality

  • Increase of thickness performance
  • Highest quality even during acceleration and deceleration
