Shapeline will be exhibiting in hall 4, booth number F30-03. There will be a running VeriFlex-system on display which will show flatness measurements on various materials and applications from hot rolling to cut-to-length. Please visit us for a personal demonstration.
Dr Pär Kierkegaard will also present a paper on the ESTAD conference titled “Optical measurement of flatness changes during laminar cooling in SSAB:s hot strip mill”. The article describes how two VeriShape systems have been used at SSAB to isolate the flatness contribution from the laminar cooling. Since the change in flatness during laminar cooling also reflects the resulting variation in material properties, it is very important information. The measurement data can be used to tune the cooling profile and the flatness after the mill. It turns out that the incoming flatness drastically affects the distribution of cooling power in the laminar cooling and therefore also the final quality of the strip. The presentation will be held in room 13 on Wednesday, June 25 at 12:20.

We welcome you to visit our booth as well as the presentation.
See you in Düsseldorf!
