Strip Width Controller

Reduction of strip over- and underwidth and increasing width performance

Strip Width Controller
  • Add-on to the existing width control of the edger in roughing mills 
  • Use existing interstand looper to adapt interstand tension 
  • No mechanical modifications necessary
  • Improved strip quality
  • Improved productivity thanks to decrease of overwidth
  • Less off-gauge—decreased areas below minimum width by reduction of reference tensions in the FM
  • Increased product tonnage
