Cold Rolling

Aluminium Strip Mill - Cold Rolling
Cold rolling is performed at a much lower temperature to hot rolling and provides a finished product thickness with an  improved surface finish, surface shape and thickness accuracy suitable for the final application.

By accurately and continuously measuring the temperature during cold rolling, operators can verify that the rolling temperature is within desired tolerances, to ensure the product specifications, the surface finish, shape and thickness tolerances.

This application is suitable for the wedge measurement technique used at the coiler or between the roll and the product during the rolling process, which eliminates the challenges posed by low temperatures and variable emissivity, and also eliminates background reflection influences.

The SPOT AL is designed for accurate, reliable temperature measurement of bright or  semi-finished hot alloy strip, with specially developed algorithms dedicated to aluminium strip parameters. The algorithms can be adjusted for different emissivities to ensure a fast, accurate response. 
The compact infrared linescanner sets a new benchmark for process imaging definition, with an industry-leading scanning performance of 1000 data points at up to 150Hz. Measuring across the entire product surface, it detects even the smallest temperature differences, supporting improved process control.
Precise temperature control enables a reduction in re-working and finishing costs, the detection of potential breakdown mill problems, and improved process control. This in turn reduces operating costs and reduces the likelihood of any producing scrap or defective product.
