Primetals Technologies to modernize rolling mill drives for AMAG rolling in Austria


New drive technology to increase availability
Short conversion time minimizes plant shutdown

Primetals Technologies has won an order from AMAG rolling GmbH, located in Ranshofen, Austria, to modernize the entire drive technology on its four-high hot rolling stand. The project includes the supply of the motors, converters and converter transformers, as well as couplings, disk brakes, mechanical adaptations and spare parts. Primetals Technologies is responsible for the layout, engineering, project management and training of the operator’s personnel, and will also handle the dismounting, installation and commissioning of the components. The purpose of the project is to increase plant availability. The modernization is scheduled to take place during a brief plant shutdown at the end of 2015.
