Galvanizing, U. S. Steel, strip, touchless sensor.


The content of this work is the analysis of contact strip edge guiding system on Continuous galvanizing line CGL3 in the factory U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. The effort of increasing of the quality of production along with decreasing of costs involves replacement of contact system by contactless system. The aim is to present contactless strip edge sensor with appropriate electromechanic actuator. The right choice of components and adequate control of sensor movement achieves better strip galvanizing.
