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 over 40 years in the aluminium industry, there’s not much Dan doesn’t know about aluminium rolling!
His expertise includes flatness & gauge control, and the avoidance of flatness defects during downstream processing. He is regularly asked by clients to carry out plant audits or to assist with post-commissioning issues. This often includes training process engineers and operators, and working with plant electrical engineers.
Dan teaches in several of the sessions on our Aluminium Rolling Technology Course. He also looks closely at data analytics, both on-line and off-line, and is involved with Industry 4.0 implementation.
