Hot dip process simulators

Nowadays, galvanized steel is manufactured using different processes, depending on the type of material. Steel strips are fed through continuous strip galvanizing plants, for example. The individual handling processes are hereby the result of elaborate laboratory tests. In order to accelerate the work which is entailed in the development of new processes, steelworks and research institutes use hot dip simulators from the Dusseldorf company Iwatani GmbH. Having been constructed for research and development, the plant can be used later in order to exactly reproduce production processes at a later date.

This approach faces the engineering specialists from Falk Steuerungssysteme GmbH with motive power engineering challenges in order to reproduce the continuous passage of the zinc bath by means of a melt process....
