Abstract: In recent years quality requirements for aluminium foil have steadily increased. The availability of wider converting machinery with improved tension controls has made possible higher converting speeds and use of thinner wider foils. The changes in rolling and finishing practice together with metallurgical improvements to input material and optimised inspection techniques are reviewed and discussed.
Keywords: aluminium foil; convertability; finishing; inspection techniques; manufacturing process control; quality control; rolling; tension control.
