Automatic Gauge Control

Using computers and sensors, rolling mills can precisely control steel’s thickness while the material is being rolled at very high speeds. Using feed-forward and feed-reverse systems, the gap between the reduction rolls can be adjusted many times per second, which helps eliminate off-gauge material. This level of control is impossible with a human operator.
