This seminar will give an introduction to the process, equipment and ancillaries utilized to produce long products; the primary focus is on the process and equipment customarily found within the rolling mill building, i.e., reheat furnace, rolling mill and finishing end. The seminar will contain both theoretical presentations and real-world case studies from long products producers in North America. The presenters represent a cross-section of industry experts in equipment, process, operations and maintenance. The seminar aims to expand an attendee's knowledge of the complete process and how safety, quality, yield, and facility utilization can be affected at each step.
