Objective

The project aims at installing and testing an innovative mechanical device, called Controlled Hydraulic Damper, to prevent 3rd octave chatter in cold rolling of thin steel strip. It would provide adequate passive damping to the stands, so that the roll-ability limits due to chatter (rolling speed, achievable strip thickness or maximal reduction) are widened.

The proposal includes vibration analysis, numerical simulation, design and construction of the device, installation and validation of the anti-chatter device in industrial conditions.

Savings of 8.5M€/year can be expected for the European production of cold rolled packaging steel.
