The present work introduces an expert system that automatically selects and designs rolling sequences for the production of square and round wires. The design strategy is aimed at reducing the overall number of passes assuming a series of process constraints, e.g., available roll cage power and torque, rolls groove filling behaviors, etc. The method is carried out into two steps: first a genetic algorithm is used to select the proper rolling sequence allowing to achieve a desired finished…
