Coil GmbH, Germany

SMS supplies a further anodizing line

The new line is the first of its kind to process aluminum strips up to 2,000 mm wide and 3.5 mm thick. Making these record dimensions will help Coil GmbH expand its market. We teamed up with Coil GmbH to develop a special highlight of the line: an electrolytic color bath. It's a partnership that goes back a long way because we commissioned our first anodizing plant at Coil GmbH in 2005. We are planning to erect the new line, which is designed for an annual capacity of 15,000 tons, alongside the old one.

SMS is responsible for engineering all plant components except the laminating machine. To complete the line, we will install a payoff reel, stitcher, entry-side looper, exit-side looper, and a tension reel. Erection supervision and commissioning are included in our service package.

As a system supplier, we are providing not only the mechanical and processing equipment, but also the electrical and automation systems.
