CVC®Plus for Steckel mill stands

Close geometrical strip tolerances

Our Steckel mill stands are equipped with CVC®plus - the world's most successful technology package for strip profile, contour, and flatness control. Today, more than 450 hot mill stands worldwide operate with CVC®plus technology today.

Here's what this technology can do for you: The system combines axial work roll shifting with special CVC® grinding, a work roll bending system, and our powerful technological process model (Profile, Contour and Flatness Control, PCFC). Based on the pre-calculated values for roll force, thermal crown, work roll wear and the mill stand deformation parameters, the PCFC calculates for each strip the optimum work roll shifting position and bending force. In this way, the system adjusts the roll gap profile to the changing conditions resulting in extremely close strip tolerances.
