Abstract

A prime requirement for the production of high quality continuously cast steel products is accurate machine alignment. A specialised measurement system has been developed to measure roll gaps, roll bending, roll turning, back face alignment and water sprays. The system consists of a battery powered head unit equipped with transducers, computer and powerful springs which is inserted into the machine. The relevant data is stored and may then be downloaded to a Ground station for presentation to an operator. Various designs have een developed to deal with different slab thicknesses, roll configurations, top fed machine, bottom fed machines, in chain measurement and bloom machines.
