The Anti Chatter Device (ACD) for cold rolling mills reduces vibrations occurring in rolling mills, especially in tandem mills. Such vibrations may lead to defects of the rolled stock and damage to the rolling equipment. By reducing the Chatter effect, it is possible to increase the rolling speed and the yield while improving the product quality. This pioneering technology is already in use in a first pilot operation and will be presented live at ALUMINIUM 2018 in Düsseldorf.
In the run-up to the trade fair, we visited Ralf Ohrndorf, Sebastian Richard and Dr. Matthias Krüger in their Hilchenbach offices and talked about the product and the trade fair appearance.
