Ironing of stainless steels

Experimental strip reduction emulating industrial ironing

In performing the off-line evaluation of the investigated tribological system, a Strip-Reduction Test (SRT) is a suitable choice. The simulative test imitates operation 4 – industrial ironing of stainless steel sheets. The selection of test parameters similar to the industrial production process will further establish convincing experimental results for directly feasible in industrial production.
