The purpose of this project is to find an economic solution to the dimensional variations observed along rod coils rolled on a multi-strand mill. During the project, several steps were crossed:

- Installation of dimension gauges on the mill, leaving the last multi-strand stand and leaving the finishing blocks;
- Installation of hydraulic screwdown equipment on stands 13 and 14 (last two 2-strand stands of the mill);
- Conception of the specifications and installation of the hydraulic screwdown and regulations;
- Design and adjustment of a digital simulator, which made it possible to determine the optimal regulation logic for the considered mill;
- Realization, at various stages of the project, of the industrial tests necessary for the validation of the installed equipment.
