The ultimate tool for optimizing hot rolling and forging processes.
For researchers who wish to optimize multiple-hit, high-speed deformations — including multi-stand rolling mills and multi-hit forging processes — the Hydrawedge offers excellent physical simulation capabilities.

Available as a stand-alone machine or as an option for a Gleeble system (3500 or 3800), the Hydrawedge is the only commercially available machine that offers the capability to perform high-speed deformation simulations with complete independent control of both strain and strain rate.

Through its patented technology, the Hydrawedge delivers test results without strain overshoot or strain rate deceleration, either one of which can reduce the validity of the simulation.

The Hydrawedge control software allows the system to be programmed like a rolling mill schedule. Enter soaking times and temperatures, rolling temperature, interpass time, controlled cooling time, and strain rate and amount of strain for each stand; the software then calculates and programs how to run that schedule on the Hydrawedge.
The Hydrawedge offers unsurpassed capability to simulate high-speed deformation. To learn more about the hydrawedge's unique capability set and how it can add value to your research or production line please contact us today.
