Abstract

To obtain true running of a steel strip, correct tracking technology plays an important role when operating strip processing lines. If the strip runs out of track, the whole process has to be stopped. With the aim of optimizing tracking systems, the lateral movement of the steel strip through the continuous pickling line of voestalpine Stahl GmbH was analysed. Two different steering strategies were investigated. The simulation results were compared with measurement results. The advantages of numerical simulation compared to experimental tests are ease, convenience and the absence of any safety risk.
