ABUL KHAIR Orders Two-Stand Compact Cold Mill from SMS Siemag
Jul. 17, 2012
ABUL KHAIR Strip Processing Ltd., based in Bangladesh, has awarded SMS Siemag of Germany an order to supply a two-stand Compact Cold Mill (CCM®). The CCM® will be designed for the production of ultra-thin strips and an annual production capacity of 185,000 tonnes.
With this mill project, ABUL KHAIR is expanding its cold strip production in Chittagong and setting new quality benchmarks for cold strip in Bangladesh. Being an extremely flexible type of mill, the CCM® is able to meet most diverse market requirements. The CCM® is a reversing mill made up of two six-high rolling stands arranged in tandem and featuring CVC® plus technology.
The new mill will be used to process pickled hot strip in widths of up to 1,250 mm and starting thicknesses of up to 4.0 mm. The strip will be rolled down to a minimum final thickness smaller than 0.1 mm.
Attainment of the required, high strip quality is ensured by the proven CVC® plus technology in combination with work and intermediate-roll bending, multi-zone cooling on the entry and exit side and the Dry Strip system. In addition to these technological features, the CCM® will be equipped with one payoff reel and two tension reels, an emulsion system with a capacity of 8,000 l/min and a magnetic separator to clean the rolling emulstion.
The quality-critical plant components will be manufactured by SMS Siemag.
