Brief description The manufacturing of thin strip with good shape, profile and flatness has a significant impact on society by providing high quality products to the electrical, instruments, and other industries. Metal manufacturing is a major Australian industry. If innovative thin strip rolling technology is developed, it will enable dramatic improvement in the strip manufacturing industry, which will bring significant economic and social benefits to Australia. The project will expand the university's R&D capability and make it a world leader in advanced metal rolling technology of thin strips. This will include the development of innovative rolling technology and new rolling theory, as well as further collaborative links with industry in Australia.
