X-Pact® Width Control

High strip width accuracy

Challenges

  • Compensation of width faults at head and tail end caused by width reduction in edging passes (rectangular strip ends)

Solution

  • Constant strip width over the entire length as close as possible to the target

Technical advantages

  • High strip width accuracy
  • Saves edge scrap as well as stock and energy

Productivity

  • Improved process stability due to better strip guidance
  • Increased yield due to less scrap cuts at finishing mill crop shear
