Ingot preparationHot rolling mills for aluminum
What makes Knoevenagel® scalpers from SMS group stand out is their high rigidity. Not only that: they also effectively remove the oxide skin as well as any metallurgical impurities from the surface of ingots. Scalping the edges reduces the amount of trimming scrap generated in the subsequent hot rolling process. That also keeps the work rolls clean.
- Multiple use of carbide tips
- Same carbide tip for roughing and finishing operations
- Tiltable second finisher for best surface structure
We custom-design control systems for aluminum scalpers, slab saws, and brazing lines to your existing solutions. That ensures a transparent information exchange between all process levels. Equally useful are distributed control components with bus interconnection for short erection and commissioning times as well as easy plant extensions. Our user-friendly machine interfaces provide clear product as well as process information to guarantee simple material tracking plus fast and easy operation.
