Development and Study of a Microprocessor-Equipped System for Monitoring the Rolling Forces on a Sheet Mill


A new microprocessor-based system for monitoring rolling forces has been designed and built, the system making it possible to measure and record changes in the load on the rolls along sheet that is in the process of being rolled. Introduction of the monitoring system was the second stage in the modernization of the two high 150×235 mill in the laboratory of the Metal-Shaping Machines and Technologies Department at MAMI. The mill was then used to perform an experiment that made it possible to evaluate the effect of the draft and the contact-friction conditions on the deformational and force parameters in the rolling of copper sheet. The experimental results also confirmed the utility of the force-monitoring system that was developed.
