The primary function of the Hot Strip Mill is to reheat semi-finished slabs of steel nearly to their melting point, then roll them thinner and longer through multiple successive rolling mill stands driven by motors and finally coiling up the lengthened steel sheet for transport to the next process.


One of the key elements during the Hot Rolling Mill process is to determine the products final thickness is correct prior to delivery to the customer following the hot rolling process. Moduloc’ s unique MD83200 Hot thickness gauge systems provide high-performance results that hot mill operators demand, especially where quality strip is manufactured for the automotive and white goods markets.
