FBW machine of hot blooms 0-90


Machine -90 is designed for FBW by pulsating flashing of steel blooms with section up to 170 x 170 mm, with length up to 12 m, of different chemical content and heated up to 1 100 ⁰C 1 200 ⁰C. The machine is installed before the first rolling stand and ensures continuous rolling process by welding of periodically supplied blooms.

The machine consists of welding unit installed on moving platform, cabinet with electric equipment, hydraulic station and hydraulic unit, weld flash trimmer, roller transfer stations, measuring and pressure rollers.

The machine construction allows providing all processes of gripping, alignment, welding and weld flash trimming in the course of its movement along the guides with welded blooms. After joint completing the machine returns to the starting point, grips the next bloom and repeats the whole cycle.
