Unique to our extended bending system (EBS) is the maximum flexibility it creates in skin passing. It works by adapting rolling forces to the material and surface requirements. That guarantees precise control of low rolling forces. These are necessary e.g. for skin passing soft steel grades (IF steel) and for EDT rolling passes for aluminum strip. EBS represents today's best technology for handling low rolling forces. It involves lifting the upper back-up roll to eliminate the weight force. Then intermediate roll bending applies the rolling force. Work roll bending adjusts the roll gap. Switching between standard and EBS mode is easy. That gives you more flexibility in production scheduling.
