Position sensor for tandem hot rolling process

Find out how to improve the position control of the rolls in the tandem hot rolling mill with the resolution of 0.5 𝜇m with an update time of 2 kHz (every 500 𝜇s)

The hot rolling process is mainly used for the production of sheet metal or simple sections such as rails.

In the hot rolling mill the process is designed to compress the steel billets or ingots and obtain the desired shape and thickness by using rollers.
The rolling is controlled by adjusting the micrometric distance of the rollers with the use of magnestrictive transducers.

The WRA-S data refresh rate and 0.5 𝜇m resolution allows you to control laminating stations accurately and in real time.
