Wear on side guides

ReduWearGuid – Reduction of wear on guiding components in hot rolling finishing and coiling line for improved service life time and product surface quality

Situation:

  • The main requirements of wear components in hot strip mills are high resistance against:
    • abrasive wear to increase lifetime,
    • thermal impact to decrease wear,
    • corrosion and adhesion to decrease wear.
  • Only a few studies have been performed to investigate deeply the guiding components in hot strip mills.

Solution:

  • State-of-the-Art of wear on guiding components used in hot flat rolling
  • Modelling and simulation of guiding components
  • Development of a new type of lubricant/ coating and new wear resistant ceramic materials
  • Trial performance in lab and pilot scale
  • First industrial implementation and verification of pilot results

Operational benefit:

  • Increased life time and performance of guiding components
  • Increased reliability and safety
  • Decreased surface defects on the strip (surface and edges)

Reduction of production costs und downtimes
