Tandem cold mills - Concepts

Tandem cold mill (TCM)

We supplied a five-stand TCM to Swedish steel producer SSAB Borlänge in 1970. Then, after an engineering study we issued, SSAB contracted us with the modernization in 2014. To ensure our customer can roll new materials cost efficiently and with better flatness on the TCM, we are supplying new mechanical devices for mill stand No. 4.
