Primetals Technologies wins another order from aluminum producer AMAG rolling to modernize rolling stands


New drive technology will increase availability
Follow-up order after successful modernization of four-high hot rolling stand in 2015

Primetals Technologies has won an order from AMAG rolling GmbH, an Austrian aluminum producer, to modernize the drive technology on the four-high cold rolling stand in its Ranshofen plant. The order covers not only the supply of the motors, converters and converter transformers, but also the couplings, disk brakes and mechanical adaptations. Primetals Technologies is, in addition, handling the design, engineering, project management and training as well as the removal and assembly of components, repairs and the supply of spare parts. The purpose of the project is to increase plant availability. The conversion and commissioning work is scheduled to take place during a brief plant shutdown at the end of 2016. Primetals Technologies previously modernized the drive technology of the four-high hot rolling stand in 2015.
