TCM - The most efficient solution

AA3xxx and AA5xxx-series aluminum grades are typically used for manufacturing beverage cans. This is where tandem cold mills (TCM) offer you the most efficient solution. Operating several single-stand mills doesn't make economic sense, especially if you want a production volume of up to 400,000 tpy. That's why there is high market demand for TCM with two to four stands in CVC® plus design.
