Analysis of Cold-Rolled Strip Profile in UCM Mill by Finite Element Method
In order to analyze the effect of entry strip thickness, entry strip crown and intermediate roll shifting on strip profile and rolling force distribution, a three dimension finite element model of rolls-strip in UCM mill was established and employed. The results showed that the increases of entry strip thickness and entry strip crown would lead to the increase of exit strip crown and edge drop under the same total rolling force; the strip crown and edge drop would be decreased if the intermediate roll shifting δi was decreased. Moreover, the rolling force distribution also was analyzed in details by changing the entry strip thickness, the entry strip crown and the intermediate roll shifting.
