Quality in focus
Vietnamese MY VIET INDUSTRIES CO., LTD. has ordered a twin-stand reversing cold mill CCM® (Compact Cold Mill) and a push-pull pickling line from SMS group’s Indian subsidiary Esmech Equipment Pvt. Ltd. The new plants, installed at the Pho Noi A Industrial Park location in the Hung Yen Province in the south of Hanoi, are scheduled to be put into operation in the fall of 2017.
The CCM® in six-high design with CVC®plus will be designed for an annual production capacity of 400,000 tons. The new mill will roll low-carbon steel strip in widths of up to 1,250 millimeters and minimum final gages down to 0.15 millimeters. The CCM® will be able to roll at a maximum rolling speed of 1,400 meters per minute.
The high technology components, such as the bending block cassettes and the CVC®plus shifting mechanism, which form the heart of the rolling mill stands and will ensure the excellent rolling quality, will be supplied by SMS group from Germany. The CCM® will come with positive and negative work and intermediate roll bending, an interactive mathematical roll pass module, automatic flatness control, etc. Thanks to the directly driven work rolls of a minimum diameter of 300 millimeters, it will be possible to roll high reductions per pass.
The scope of supply of SMS group also includes the fluid and media plants, such as high and low-pressure hydraulics, and the emulsion plant.
