For a continuously reliable process

Hot rolling and heavy plate production are always associated with great forces. Shock, vibration and applied forces are typical here: for example, when rolling and cooling or cutting to finished dimensions along with the accompanying inspection steps. The equipment also needs to withstand moisture on the rolling mill caused by water cooling.

As a heavy plate producer you need high-performance equipment and suitable regulating devices at every process stage. With Balluff you get first-class technology to master all the stages from the slab to the coil: fieldbus modules, temperature sensors, position measuring systems, industrial RFID systems and vision sensors.

Application examples

Fieldbus modules up to 70 °C for all bus systems
Slab guidance in the rolling stand
Reliable slab position detection
Setting the roll gap precisely
Quality assurance at the rolling stand
Correct assignment of slabs and coils
