This presentation will explore the various sources of vibration that can affect strip marking in steel and aluminium rolling mills. Among these, a common marking source is grinder chatter on the rolls, even as micro-chatter that is invisible to the naked eye.

Real case studies will be used to describe how these vibrations are addressed in practice, both in terms of improving the structural dynamics of rolling mills and grinding machines and also in providing the necessary tools such as monitoring systems that help the operators find the best conditions that minimise the occurrence of vibrations during rolling and grinding and Chatter_Detect that has proved invaluable in detecting invisible chatter marks on the finished roll.

Moving downstream Farrat present findings from a 3 year research project exploring the behaviour of presses running in different sites, at different speeds supported by different vibration isolation systems.

After registering for this event, an email will be sent out by the IMechE Switzerland pulicity officer approximately 24 hours before the start of the online event with the link to the MS Teams meeting.  Registering later than this may mean you do not receive joining instructions.

Please note, this online event is taking place in Switzerland and the starting time is 17:00CET (16:00BST if joining from the UK) please check your local timezone difference if joining from elsewhere!


Youssef Benhafsi, Jacob McCormick and Florian Cabaret. Applications Engineers in Industrial Vibration Analysis and Control at Farrat.
