To obtain a better strip shape control method, this paper proposes roll profile electromagnetic control technology (RPECT) based on induction heating technology and the principle of metal thermal expansion. Using the thermally driven and internal constraint mechanism of the electromagnetic stick, the technology innovatively converts the energy of induction heating into a thermodynamic hybrid power source, which achieves segmented micro-scale flexible roll profile adjustment and enhances the capacity for strip shape control. To research the technology, an electromagnetic control roll (ECR) with five control regions is built based on a ϕ560 × 2180 mm roll, and an electromagnetic-thermal-mechanical coupling model is established. Based on the model, the typical roll profile curves obtained by the ECR are researched, the strategy of increasing the growth rate of the roll crown is analysed, and the applications of RPECT in strip shape control and cold rolling are discussed. Finally, a roll profile electromagnetic control experiment platform is established to verify the model accuracy and feasibility of RPECT. The results show that RPECT can realize flexible roll profile adjustment and that the model has sufficiently high computational accuracy to research the roll profile of multi-segment RPECT.
Key words: electromagnetic control roll / flexible roll profile / strip shape control / roll crown growth rate / induction heating
