Automatic Bending Control. A level-0 system that takes care of
very fast control loops concerning bending of rolls.
Accellerated cooling / direct quenching equipment. See
cooling section below.
Automatic Gauge Control. A level-0 system that takes care of
very fast control loops concerning the force and gap
Automatic Width Control. A level-0 system that takes care of
very fast control loops concerning width control.
The tracking of products in the line.
Measured values processing
The collection and treatment of all data that is reported
from the subsystems. The data is reduced and modified to
fit the model and it's calculations.
Man Machine Interface. The graphical screens that the operator
is using to supervise and control the process.
The part of the software system that does the
A movement of a plate through the mill.
A movement of a plate through a leveller is also a pass...
A series of data which contains setup values for the basic
automation. The data is precalculated by the model and
consists of thickness setup values, speeds, max forces etc.
Primary Data Input. The data that is coupled to a product.
Coming from a level-3 system. Is treated as read-only.
The part of the model which is made AFTER a pass. Is mostly
followed by a precalculation for the next pass.
The part of the model which is made BEFORE the pass.
The arrival of PDI and the action followed therebye is called
The sending of a pass schedule data to the level-1 system
in order for it to position to the right positionings
before an operation is also called a setup.
