Aluminium rolling technology
Dan is a rolling process consultant and a recognised expert in aluminium rolling.
He’s worked in most of the former Alcan rolling operations across the globe, as well as a huge number of plants since Innoval was formed.
With almost 40 years in the aluminium industry, there’s not much Dan doesn’t know about aluminium rolling!
His expertise includes flatness and gauge control, the avoidance of flatness defects in the manufacturing route and light gauge applications. He is regularly asked by clients to carry out plant audits or to assist with post-commissioning issues, part of which often includes training process engineers and operators.
Dan teaches in several of the sessions on our Aluminium Rolling Technology Course. He also writes and delivers training on statistical data analysis and experimental design.
