Severstal Russian Steel division’s Cherepovets Iron and Steel Works has completed the construction of a strip surface quality inspection line at a five stand cold rolling mill. The total cost of the investment project, which was implemented in the rolling and annealing shop, is about RUB 215 million. The new cold rolled strip surface quality inspection line was located in line with the rolling mill. Samples to be inspected are cut with flying scissors and transferred to inspection equipment.
The line includes mechanisms for turning the strip to control the quality of its surface from the bottom side. In addition, sheet tensioning devices will allow obtaining a flat surface for control and eliminating the influence of uneven reflection of the luminous flux on the assessment of the suitability of rolled metal for customers in the automotive industry.
