An automation system for universal wide-flange beam rolling mills has been developed and implemented. It comprises data processing equipment that runs the mill and tracks the products during rolling, on-line measurement facilities (temperature, rolling efforts, beam dimensions) and tools for automatic rolling scheme generation. The load behaviour of the rolling stands has been characterised in order to allow the introduction of compensation for stand yield into the setup models. The use of this automation system leads to better utilisation of the mill (yield, productivity and tolerances).
