  • What Is Cladding?

    What Is Cladding?

    Cladding is a method of fusing different metals into a strip. Thermostats are made with a cladded material of different coefficient of expansion. By cladding copper and steel together, the changing temperature makes the product bend to operate electrical contacts. The temperature range can be adjusted such as a thermostat.

  • Automatic Gauge Control (AGC) and Direct Gap Control (DGC)

    Automatic Gauge Control (AGC) and Direct Gap Control (DGC)

    In older rolling mills, a flying micrometer was used for gauge control.  A flying micrometer is rollers in a C-frame.  The rollers operate an encoder, which tells the position of the gap between two rollers.  The micrometer is held perpendicular to the surface of the moving strip.
