When alternating reduction in vertical and horizontal rolls, occurring in a roughing group of continuous wide-strip hot rolling mills, the metal transitions from the lateral edges and ribs of a slab to horizontal surfaces of the hot-rolled breakdown. In this case, the metal in the edge region is shifted to the longitudinal axis of the hot-rolled breakdown. The magnitude of the metal movement, and with them the edge defects formed on the continuously cast slab, on the horizontal surfaces of the hot-rolled breakdown directly a affects the value of the side trim in subsequent technological operations. In previous papers, recommendations were made for adjusting the compression modes of slabs with edge cracks, cast at continuous steel casting plants, when rolling in the draft group of continuous broadband hot rolling mills. In this paper, the results of comparing the modes that take into account the developed recommendations and the applied modes are considered. The joint effect of the developed recommendations on the amount of metal displacement from the lateral edges of the slab to the longitudinal axis of the roll is determined. The influence of the critical point of the edge influx on the amount of metal displacement from the edge of the strip is studied. The technical effect of implementing the developed recommendations on a continuous broadband hot rolling mill is evaluated. The studies were carried out using a computer model of slab deformation in three universal free-standing stands. The model is based on the finite element method and is implemented in the SIMULIA ABAQUS software package.
