This chapter presents a mathematical model suitable for the development of a controller for the tandem cold metal rolling process. A comprehensive model is developed and put into the form of state and output equations. The model is verified by simulation, the results of which are compared to the results of simulations based on a model that is recognized as a benchmark standard for verification.
