The invention relates to a device for measuring the flatness of rolled strip under tension, in-line hot rolling strip containing a line of rough rolling line finishing with several prochainement in the device of this type.

The deviation from flatness of rolled strips is determined by the difference in length according to the width of the rolled strip. As rolled strip affects the tension, the difference in length is aligned, at least partially due to elastic elongation. You cannot direct measurement of the difference in the lengths. To determine the flatness defect can use the distribution of tension when stretching, depending on the difference of lengths.

To establish deviations from flatness in cold rolled strips are used, for example, guide rollers. When the deviation of the strip deflecting force is proportional to the stretching, is used as a measuring value.

From DE 3721746 A1 a method and a device for measuring the flatness of rolled strip under tension in the lines of hot-rolled wide strip. Using broken into segments of rollers for measuring tension measure the distribution of tension in the rolled strip and thus indirectly determine its flatness. In the case of such broken into segments of rollers there is great danger of clogging of the gap between these rollers, used or for use in corrosive environments, and this PR is does create a device and a measuring roller, based on a different measuring principle and not having the disadvantages of the known devices.

This problem is solved in a device of the aforementioned type due to the fact that in the rolling direction between the first rolling stand of the finishing line rolling and the winder is at least one measuring roller, rolled strip is fed through each of the measuring roller, which is bent under the action of the tension band, and provides the receiver measured value for measuring bending of the measuring roller.

The device according to the invention preferably can be used, in particular, when rolling very thin strips.

Is preferred to have one or more measuring rollers between the rolling stands of the line finish rolling and/or during the last rolling stand in the rolling direction of the line finishing and/or before the driving mechanism of the winder and/or between the drive mechanism and winder.

Depending on the location of one or more measuring rollers of the measured value obtained by measuring rollers, can be used for displacement in the axial direction of the rolls of the rolling stand, for izmenennoe the location of the measuring rollers can affect the cooling of the rolled strip and/or work rolls.

If the measuring roller is, for example, between the drive mechanism and the winder, the measured value obtained from the measuring roller can be used to rotate the drive mechanism. Using this event you can regulate the passage of the strip when wound on a mandrel winder.

If the drive mechanism of the winder is, as usual, after cooling of the strip, with the aid of the measuring roller located in front of the driving mechanism of the winder, it is possible to measure the impact on the cooling of the strip and, if necessary, to regulate the cooling of the strip.

If proveshivanii measuring roller is hollow and is mounted for rotation in fixed bearings in the cavity of the measuring roller in the axial direction concentric with the axis of the unloaded measuring roller is a holder for at least one receiver of the measured values, then each receiver measured value is reliably protected from external influences.

The holder for the receiver measured values shall be of such dimensions that the space between the holder and the surface of the inner lining of the measuring roller is sufficient to prob measuring roller relative to the direct holder using track gauges. More precise conclusions about the flatness of the strip can be made if the fixed bearings of the measuring roller are held in the bearing brackets, which are devices for measuring force. They can measure the strength preferably in several directions.

If the distances in the axial direction of the holder at regular intervals around its perimeter there are several receivers measured values, in particular the travel of the probes in each position of the measuring roller can be removed several measured values and calculate the average value. The calculation of the average value increases the accuracy and reliability of measurements. As a rule, enough to place in several places respectively on two opposite receiver measured value.

If the holder of the receiver measured value has a through hole in the axial direction with connections to the receivers measured value, its supply piping can be protected lies inside the holder.

Instead of electrical receiver measured value of the measurement path can be made, for example, with a laser. In this case, as the conductor signals apply the conclusions about the bending roller and thereby on the flatness of the strip, if proveshivanii measuring roller is hollow and is mounted for rotation in fixed bearings in the cavity of the measuring roller passes shaped element with holes for hydrostatic environment, with openings at least partially fixed in the cavity formed between the measuring roller and the shaped element and with holes connected to at least one device for measuring the flow (for example, direct measurement using a propeller or ultrasound, reducing the pressure using the throttle). Depending on the tension of the rolled strip is changed, the volume of flow in the holes shaped element. In this implementation of the invention, the volumetric flow can be measured preferably on the outside of the measuring roller by using a device for measuring the flow regardless of the temperature of the rolled strip. As a side effect of hydrostatic medium removes heat from the measuring roller. In addition, hydrostatic environment supports are made mostly of thin-walled proveshivanii measuring hollow roller operating in the area adjoining rolled strip.

As a suitable hydrostatic environments are used, for example, oil,the pH of the logged expanding in the form of a pocket.

It is preferred that the width of the measuring roller is a lot cormanobresso or funnel-shaped widening of entrance holes.

Hereinafter the invention is explained in more detail with several examples.

In Fig. 1 is shown a measuring roller which is located inside the measurement system path;

Fig. 2 - measuring roller with hydrostatic support, and

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section of the measuring roller according to Fig. 2 with, respectively, a schematic depiction of the measurement flow by way of the pressure difference, shown in the right half of the drawing, and the direct measurement of the flow shown in the left half of the drawing.

Proveshivanii measuring roller, indicated by the number 1, is mounted by means of two self-aligning roller bearings 2, supported on brackets 3 bearings. The brackets 3 bearings are located on the cross beam 5. Between the brackets 3 bearings and crosshead 5 is one device 4 for measuring force.

Concentric with and in the direction of the axis 7 of the measuring roller shown in Fig. 1 unloaded in the cavity of the measuring roller 1 passes deracialized at predetermined distances, respectively, the other system devices 9 measurement path. Of the various signal systems 9 measurement path not shown in the drawing, the computing device can determine the line of the bending roller 1 under load rolled strip 11. Using the appropriate locations of the two opposite systems devices 9 measurement path, it becomes possible to obtain two measured values in one position of the roller 1 and then calculate the average value.

This increases the accuracy and reliability of measurements. Through the hole 12 in the axial direction of the holder 8 to the system 9 for measuring the paths are not shown in the drawing, the electrical connecting wires.

Based on the curve and signal device 4 for measuring power with reliability to obtain information about the distribution of tension in the rolled strip 11 and thereby its flatness.

On the basis of this form of execution is obtained a secure location systems 9 devices for measuring the path inside the roller 1.

On the side view of the measuring roller 1 can be noted that the yoke 5, which still holds at a certain distance bracket 3 bearing itself is located on the hydraulic cylinder 13, through which the roller 1 is pressed from below to chatanooga to approach trajectory strip or preferably at the beginning or at the end of the strip is disposed in a protected position.

In Fig. 2 shows the measuring roller with a hydrostatic system for receiving measured values.

Proveshivanii roller 32 is hollow and is mounted for rotation in not shown in Fig. 2 fixed bearings. In the cavity of the measuring roller 32 is coaxially thereto is a cylindrical shaped element 33.

Axially through the shaped element 33 passes several holes 34, 35, which in its end zones are deflected at a right angle and into the cavity 36 formed between the measuring roller 32 and the shaped element 33. In the place of entrance holes 34, 35 extend in the form of pockets 37A or funnels b (see Fig. 3; here schematically presents this funnel). Aside from located in the form of a cascade of holes 34, 35 for the flow of hydrostatic environment is another hole 38, which serves to divert the incoming hydrostatic environment. The hole 38, which serves also as the drain, is expanding cormanobresso in the area of its entrance into the cavity 36.

Passing over the roller 32 rolled strip 39 Flex relatively thin-walled roller 32. Due to the bending decreases the flow of hydraulic medium through the openings 34, 35. Changing course enie flow can be measured directly or determined from the pressure drop in place of throttling; both possibilities are shown in Fig. 3. As can be seen in the left half of the drawing, the working device 40 for measuring the flow has a propeller 41 is an alternative it is also possible, for example, measurement using ultrasound - holes 34, 35, and a certain amount of the flowing medium is converted in the Converter 42 measured value into an electrical signal for regulation. Another device 43 for measuring the flow shown in the right half of the drawing.

Here in the holes 34, 35 provided by the inductors 44, which determine the change of the flow based on the pressure difference, which served to regulate in the form of an electrical signal from the transducers 42 measured value.

Hydrostatic environment serves simultaneously for cooling the measuring roller 32, and also rolled strip 38.
