Rolling Mill technology is a core competency of IMS. This is where IMS truly got its start, and remains at the heart of what we do. When it comes to Rolling knowledge and experience, IMS is a world leader. IMS was one of the first companies to pioneer the application of PLC systems to all aspects of rolling mill control. The concept from the beginning has been to use commercially available off-the-shelf solutions and reject “home brewed,” proprietary control system platforms.
No matter whether we are talking about hot mills, cold mills, plate mills, single stand mills, z-mills, tandem mills, reversing mills in steel, aluminum, titanium, and other metals – IMS has done that!
IMS brings vast experience with our own design algorithms to address the following sophisticated functions:
Coordinated Strip Propulsion
“Smart” S-Ramp acceleration and deceleration
Speed bias cascading
Auto slowdown and stop with tail spot
Auto zoom for finish temperature control on hot strip mills
Inertia compensation for accel/decel
Automatic Gauge Control (AGC)
Volumetric (mass flow)
Thickness gauge feedback and monitor
Auto gain compensation for material hardness
Oil film compensation
Inertia compensation due to massflow corrections
Automatic Flatness Control (AFC)
Shape Roll Interface
Crown control adjustments (Z-Mill applications)
