RCM Gazi Metal Mamülleri, Turkey

Central element of a new cold strip complex

This RCM boasts a capacity of 350,000 tpy. It's part of a new production plant for carbon and silicon steel we built for Turkish steel producer Gazi Metal Mamülleri in Karazu. We supplied all the core equipment

of the cold mill complex, complete with the X-Pact® electrical and automation systems. Also included in our supply scope was a semi- continuous pickling line with acid regeneration plant and a skin pass mill.

Built in CVC® plus 6-high design, the RCM is designed to roll a broad spectrum of steel grades, from low-alloyed carbon steels to non-grain oriented silicon steels. It went on stream in 2014. To ensure high performance, we equipped the RCM with a whole series of high-tech components:

  • CVC® plus combined with positive and negative work and intermediate roll bending
  • Multizone cooling and DS system
  • X-Pact® automation system with model-based pass schedule calculation and visualization
  • Preparation for Edge Drop Control (EDC®)

Strip width: 600 - 1,500 mm
Strip thickness: 1.50 - 6.00 mm (entry) / 0.25 - 3.00 mm (exit)
Rolling speed: Max. 1,200 m/min
Capacity: 350,000 tpy
