Flatness measuring in flat rolling mills

Flatness measuring is a highly developed measuring process in modern rolling mill technology. Yet, even under the most adverse operating conditions, the measurements must meet all demands for minimum maintenance costs and long service life. That’s the only way to ensure the constant availability of your rolling mill.

Our flatness measuring basic training is geared toward the requirements of rolling mill operators in the steel and NF metal industry. It’s a premium training – ideal for you if you want to learn about or increase your understanding of the theory and practice of flatness measuring. The training comprises classroom training plus a tour of our production shop.
