AMAG rolling GmbH, Austria

High-end rolling technology for sophisticated products

Our customer AMAG rolling GmbH is driving ahead with its “AMAG 2020” investment program. SMS group is supplying a cold rolling mill, a heat treatment line, a high bay storage and a packaging line to the aluminum producer located in Ranshofen, Austria. The cold rolling mill will be one of the world’s most modern and productive single-stand mills.

Our customer is planning an extremely large product range from soft to ultra-strong aluminum grades. It’s a tall order for any plant. That’s why we are implementing not only CVC® plus and other proven actuators in the 6-high mill, but also some of our latest technology innovations. One is our inductive edge heating system. This compact solution ensures precise heating in the edge area of the work rolls. As a result, it consumes only a fraction of the energy needed by a conventional Hot Edge Spray system. Another highlight is the Extended Bending System (EBS), engineered by SMS group for even better control of low rolling forces. Furthermore, there are fast changing devices for the work and intermediate rolls as well as for the sleeves that ensure high productivity. Included in the supply scope are the entry-side coil preparation station and the exit-side inspection station for fast and reliable inspection of both sides of the strip. Last but not least, we are supplying the Multi-Plate® filter, the Oildist system, and the Airwash™ system – specially designed for efficient and sustainable production.
