This seminar will also focus on terminal equipment for the entry and exit sections, strip quality assessment, industrial hygiene, safety, environmental concerns, overview of modeling for design and line control, operations, maintenance, and factors to consider in configuring a new process line. There will be many opportunities to discuss issues and problem solving during the question-and-answer periods.
