Hot rolling mills for copper

Hot rolling
Variety combined with performance

Whether you deal with copper, brass, bronze, or any other copper alloys - our hot rolling mills are first choice for a whole range of materials and dimensions. Equally important reasons for choosing our plants are their high productivity and strip quality in terms of flatness and thickness tolerances. So you get machines equipped with modern rolling technologies such as CVC® plus work roll shifting or hydraulic roll adjustment. Combined with our X-Pact® automation, they guarantee excellent results.
