Billetweigh System

The Billetweigh system cuts hot steel billets by weight, as opposed to length, to prevent shipping of excess steel do to mold abrasion and other factors. The accuracy of the Billetweigh systems is within 0.02% of an aim weight. The computer-based system is engineered for integration with a continuous caster and air cylinders that raise and lower the billets from a roll table.

The optimization computer monitors the weight variables before cutting to determine the weight and length of the billet. The system weighs selected billets as they are produced and uses their weight to adjust length of future billets, keeping them at a target weight.
