Objective

The project deals with the control of the coating weight in the hot dip coating process. The current wiping technology used the gas knife system is limiting with regards to production of low coating weights and the line speeds at which they can be achieved.

The development of new wiping techniques should enable a high line speed with a high flexibility on the final coating thickness. Hence, to overcome the current bottleneck of the galvanising line and so to pave the way for increased productivity, to extend possible coating range and high mastering of the production cost.
