Roller and operator of a hot rolling mill: reversing stand of a large-section mill

26 hours (approx)
rating 5 / 5
The purpose of the simulator: to gain skills in rolling metal in a reversing stand of a heavy section mill based on a virtual process control system.

The simulator contains equipment control elements, a dynamic 3-dimensional model of the unit, information necessary for conducting the technological process and evaluating the result.

Thanks to animation, the student can observe the behavior of the equipment on the virtual work site.

The mathematical model at the heart of the simulator allows calculating the exact result of rolling process based on the specified parameters and the student's actions.

The workshop allows you to obtain a roll of the required dimensions in a virtual process control system in a reversing stand.

Topics covered:
1. History of rolling
2. Roll pass design
3. Reversing stand device
4. Rolling process
5. Technological operations in the fabrication of rolled products
6. Stages of rolling in a reversing stand
7. Calculation of rolling parameters
8. Analysis of rolling results

There are 2 simulation modes:
The "Training" mode is aimed at teaching the conduct of the technological process and obtaining the target parameters. In this mode, the student has access to various auxiliary materials: laboratory work, detailed descriptions of tasks, diagrams, tips, etc.
The "Testing" mode helps to independently practice and test the acquired skills.

Time required: 26 hours
Our online courses are designed for a quick and easy learning process. Time required may vary depending on the student's experience and prefered pace.
Suitable for beginner level students and for those looking to refresh their knowledge

The mathematical model
Learning stages
Allows you to get acquainted with the subject area, learn about the device and the principles of operation of the equipment, as well as the features of the technological process
Setting metal rolling parameters
Before starting metal rolling, a student independently or under the guidance of a teacher sets the target rolling parameters. They set the initial parameters of a billet.

The choice of parameters allows you to work out many options for the development of the process. The simulator offers a choice of the most common steel grades.
The technological screen models the reversing stand equipment's control system and contains all the information necessary for the process.

This section allows a student to:
- operate the reversing stand equipment;
- control actions with animation;
- monitor changes in metal temperature and rolling parameters.
Analysis of rolling results
Based on the results of the process, a report is formed, in which all student's actions (including erroneous ones) are recorded:
- target and actual rolling parameters;
- rolling parameters for each pass (groove, roll gap, height, width, etc.);
- list of violations committed during metal rolling.
