Gap Setting Model and Application in Plate Rolling Process
According to the characteristic of plate rolling process and the on-line applications, the non-homogeneous wear and thermal expansion of rollers, the elastic recovery and thermal expansion of work pieces, the variation of oil film thickness and the zero point deviation, which influence the precision of gap setting model, are analyzed. Based on the results of analysis, a high-precision gap setting model is proposed, and a zero point correction method is developed, in order to avoid overshoot, damp coefficient, which is affected by the thickness of work piece and zero point deviation are considered, is introduced. On-line applications indicate that the gap setting model improves the precision of gap setting and laid a good foundation of further improvement of thickness accuracy.
