Roll profile electromagnetic control technology (RPECT) is a control technology for strip flatness based on the flexible control of roll profiles. As the core component, electromagnetic sticks can bulge with induction heating of induction coils. To ensure the integrity of the coil circuit, the surfaces of the electromagnetic sticks need to be provided with slots. Moreover, the inner hole of the electromagnetic control roll is also needed to install the electromagnetic stick in the roll. The structures of the inner hole and slots affect the local structure of the electromagnetic stick and the electromagnetic control roll and then change the roll profile control ability. To research the radial bulging ability, the roundness of bulging, and the composition between the thermal crown and force crown under different holes or slots, a finite element model of circumferential RPECT is established by using the finite element software Marc. After analysis, the results showed that the radial bulging ability and the roundness under the influence of the roll radius were larger than those under the influences of the slot radius and slot amount, and the composition characteristics of the comprehensive roll profile were different under different conditions. Therefore, to achieve accurate roll profile control, the influences of the structures of holes and slots need to be included in the RPECT index.
