  • A slipper metal is used for power transmission in the aluminum hot rolling process. The slipper metal connects a spindle with a coupling. Therefore, if the slipper metal is seriously damaged, the spindle and the coupling will crash into each other. Therefore, preventing the destruction of the slipper metal is essential for ensuring a long mechanical life cycle. In this study, the structural analysis and optimal design of the slipper metal was carried out by finite element method for life extension of the slipper metal. To verify the interference of spindle assembly with modified slipper metal, a kinematics simulation was performed by applying various combinations of dynamic boundary conditions. As a result of structural analysis and optimal design of the slipper metal, the maximum stress of the modified slipper metal was lower than that of the initial model by 22%.
