Shape Rolling of a European Standard Beam IPE Profile

A pilot study carried out by engineers from EnginSoft and Beltrame

ABSTRACT

A pilot study carried out by engineers from EnginSoft and Beltrame concluded that the production process of a hot rolled IPE Profile can be successfully simulated using a combination of experience and numerical simulation.  The study allowed the engineers to estimate the shape profile geometry after each roll pass, the rolls wear and the total load and point at which the beam will bend in off-center setups. The complete simulation of 4 consecutive roll passes which accounted for more complex aspects such as the differential cooling of the bar and the excessive bending and differential velocity effects, introduced significant improvements in the understanding of the actual shape rolling process, helping engineers to control the out-of-axis loads in roll pass design.
