SMS group supplied a twin-stand Compact Cold Mill (CCM®) to steel producer ABUL KHAIR Strip Processing Ltd. from Bangladesh. The mill went into operation in 2015. ABUL KHAIR is delighted with the flexibility of the CCM®, which enables the company to meet several market requirements.
ABUL KHAIR uses the CCM® to produce thin strips with final gauges down to 0.09 mm. As always, we manufactured the quality-determining mill components of the CVC® plus 6-high mill in our own workshop.
Here are the main features that ensure strip quality:
- CVC® plus combined with work and intermediate roll bending
- Multizone cooling as well as DS systems on the entry and exit sides
Also integrated in the CCM® are one payoff and two tension reels. Furthermore, we were responsible for supplying the emulsion plant with magnetic chain-type separator and vacuum filter for efficient emulsion cleaning. This plant uses speed-controlled pumps to adjust the emulsion volume to the required levels. This saves energy and other resources. That means the CCM® is not only flexible but also a prime example of green tech.
