Nov 24, 2014 Automatic rolling process is a high-speed system which always requires high-speed control and communication capabilities. Meanwhile, it is also a typical complex electromechanical system distributed control has become the mainstream of computer control system for rolling mill. Generally, the control system adopts the 2-level control
A model-free approach or a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) approach for process control is often used to control CQAs in continuous processes and is based on the direct use of PAT. Compared to the model-based approach, the model-free approach is easier to implement because it does not require a developed mathematical model.
The analysis of the simulation results allowed formulation of the process control procedures with the objectives of decreasing the specific energy consumption of the mill, maintaining the targeted specific surface area of the final product, and governing the
Traditionally, in a pulp mill, different operations such as woodyard, digester, recovery boiler etc., are controlled from separate control rooms. The integration of the management and control systems into a single control room provides unparalleled connectivity, a complete overview of the mill and increased process efficiency and productivity.

Sep 01, 2016 Modeling and Control of Multi Stage Rolling Mill Process. Sheet Rolling Mill processes involve progressive thickness reduction of continuous sheet metal in multiple stages. Some of the control variables of interest are exit thickness, throughput and the tension in the sheet as it passes from one stage to the other.
The dis- tributed control system 800xA is provided by ABB, and this is what the operators use for process monitoring and control. Currently, the control of the mill discharge pumps op- erating to transport slurry from the mill circuit to the flotation system is not completely satisfactory.
There are many intermediate web guides in cold rolling mills process such as CRM (cold rolling mill), CGL (continuous galvanizing line), EGL (electrical galvanizing line) and so on. The main functions of the web guides are to adjust the center line of the web (strip) to the center line of the steel process. So they are called CPC (center position control). Rapid process speed cause

3.1 Key Feature of Process Control Detection of Periodic Defects Rolls and rollers are the most heavily used parts of a rolling mill. Due to wear from contacting hot material with great force, their lifetime is limited. Although rolls are refurbished in the roll shop regularly, they occasionally crack before the end of the usual production cycle.

The basic CNC process can be broken down into 3 steps. The engineer first designs the CAD model of the part. The machinist then turns the CAD file into a CNC program (G-code) and sets up the machine. Finally, the CNC system executes all machining operations with little supervision, removing material and creating the part.
