Flatness for large and thin plates: results of a new quenching process
Optional Fields
In 1996, FaFer started two new water-quenching lines for its thin (4 mm as a minimum) and large (dimensions of 13,000 x 3,200 mm(2)) carbon and stainless steel plates. A new process has been developed and patented which is based on a plate guiding principle. This principle is opposed to the more traditional ``press'' concept. The basic ideas that have led to both achievements are introduced as well as the results obtained in terms of flatness performances and decreased downgrading rate.
