Technology, Maintenance and Repair of Hot Rolling Steel Mill Special Drives

Classroom Training


This one-day training course provides participants with a comprehensive insight into drive technology in the field of hot rolling long (bar, rod, sections, and rails).

Hosted by a Primetals Technologies expert in gearing technology, you will learn all about gearboxes for horizontal and vertical steel mill drives, encompassing the detailed design of state-of-the-art gearboxes, monitoring under specific operating conditions, as well as aspects of service and repair.

Participants will improve their understanding of the detailed layout and function of the special drives, and will be able to identify problems as well as plan and execute any required maintenance or proper repairing of the gearboxes in hot rolling steel mills. On completion of the course, participants will be in a position to significantly contribute to increased rolling mill availability.
