  • Publication number: 20210331222
    Abstract: A casting-rolling installation (10) with at least one finishing train (12), having at least a last roll stand (14) and with a cooling device (16) arranged downstream of the finishing train (12). To achieve a metallurgically advantageous microstructure, at least one temperature adjusting element (18) is provided, for increasing or at least substantially keeping constant a temperature of an object, in particular a workpiece, in order to counteract cooling of the object or the workpiece, which temperature adjusting element is arranged after the last roll stand (14) and before the cooling device (16) and/or is arranged after the last roll stand (14) and after the cooling device (16).

  • Publication number: 20140214340
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for detecting at least one periodically occurring defect on an object, in particular on a metal strip, in which at least one time signal is recorded from the moving object using a measuring method, the time signal is converted into a quality function using a stochastic method and one or more periodic signals in the time signal are inferred on the basis of this quality function in order to thereby detect at least one periodically occurring defect on the object. In order to obtain advantageous method properties, it is proposed to convert the time signal recorded by means of the measuring method, in particular the electromagnetic measuring method, into the quality function using a model-based estimation method, in particular using a maximum likelihood method.
