Objective

Roll marks created by the cold rolling are tiny defects only revealed by a manual stone brushing. But enhanced by the coating they create unacceptable defects on the galvanised or painted surface. Benefits would results from automatic detection early after tandem mill, saving about 9M�/y (defects, claims).

Today no surface inspection system is able to reach the goal. Human inspection is performed after stone brushing on a limited area of strip. The project aims to develop a technique suitable to detect on-line roll marks at tandem mill exit and assess its detection performances in industrial environment.
