    During quenching process of steel plate, control parameters are important to production quality. In this work, a thermal process mathematical model has been developed for roller-type quenching machine to predict the temperature field of a plate at first, and then an optimization schedule considering quenching technology and equipment limitations was presented to obtain the best roller velocity based on it. A numerical simulation has been performed during optimization process to investigate the effects of roller velocity to the temperature of the representative plate. Taking the optimization method, a study was also performed for different thickness of the plate to obtain the corresponding roller velocity. The results show that the optimized roller velocity can be achieved on roller-type continuous quenching machine by the optimization method based on the thermal process mathematical model.
