The rolling applications covered by Ingeteam, are the following:
Rolling mills with one or several stands (Cluster and Sendzimir mills), line and continuous tandem mills, reversible and non-reversible reduction, skin-pass (temper mill), double cold reduction (DCR) and rolling of sheet steel, stainless steel, aluminum, for a vast range of final products. The task of the rolling model is to provide the adequate configuration values at level 1 of the open control system. The main objectives of the pre-adjustment model are:
-Optimization of the strip quality regarding length, surface and flatness out of tolerance.
-Production optimization by increasing feeding rates, maximum acceleration and speed.
-Guarantee that all preset values remain within the limits configured for the material and the mill.
-Avoid strip breakdowns, marks produced by the rollers and feeding stops.
-Configuration of steady rolling conditions.
