The objective of this project is the investigation of metallurgical conditions which allow the elimination of annealing treatments of austenitic and ferritic hot rolled coils, maintaining the same mechanical, microstructural properties and surface quality, exploiting the residual heat of hot rolling. The advantages of this operation are:

- Drastic decrease of transformation times;
- Decrease of transformation costs by energy recovery;
- Increase of productivity.
