Metal | Process Optimization on the Rolling Train

Continuous Measurement of Forming Temperature

At a rolling mill, a continuous measurement of forming temperature between individual rolls leads to an optimzed process control and quality assurance. As a rolling mill consists of various stations, we recommend two devices: A fast pyrometer for sheet temperature measurement and a ratio pyrometer for the cooling chamber and wire temperature measurement.


In the manufacturing of semi-finished products the slabs are cooled from around 1,250 °C in racks. For quality assurance and process optimization the forming temperature is measured between the individual rollers.

Process temperature: 700 °C to 1,100 °C
