Çolakoğlu Metalurji, Turkey

Compact Hot Strip Mill

The entire hot strip mill operates with SMS group's X-Pact® electrical and automation system. That paid off for Çolakoğlu Metalurji in the form of fast commissioning, a steep run-up curve, and excellent strip quality right from the start. Just seven weeks after commissioning, Çolakoğlu Metalurji rolled strip with the required minimum final thickness of 1.2 mm.
