Luoyang Wanji grants FAC for two SMS Siemag aluminum rolling mills
Following the smooth and efficient commissioning of two new CVC® plus six-high cold rolling mills, Chinese aluminum producer Luoyang Wanji Processing Company issued the Final Acceptance Certificate (FAC) for both mills to SMS Siemag, Germany.
On cold rolling mill No. 1, the first strip had already been rolled in 2012. The FAC was granted before the end of the year, marking the successful completion of the hot commissioning phase, with the rolling mill becoming an integral part of production operations. This success was repeated on March 30, 2013, when also for cold rolling mill No. 2 the FAC was granted.
Luoyang Wanji’s new production facilities in the province of Henan in East China now boast installed production capacities totaling 260,000 tons per year. The commissioning of these plants is a milestone in Luoyang Wanji’s entry into the production of premium aluminum cold strip in widths of up to 2,150 millimeters and final gages of up to 0.1 millimeters for a wide range of applications.
SMS Siemag AG and SMS Meer GmbH are both companies of SMS group which, under the roof of SMS Holding GmbH, consists of a group of companies internationally active in plant construction and mechanical engineering for the steel and nonferrous metals industry.
