Welding solution featuring Mash Lap or Fiber Laser
Primetals Technologies introduces its most advanced laser welder performing welding and cutting using asolid laser source, dedicated to ultra high strength steels. This welding machine, called LW21L and mainly targetting annealing lines, provides a very high performance level for a wide range of grades. For annealing lines, Primetals Technologies also offers the state of the art MashLap welding machine ranging from 0.1 to 5.0 mm offering a great service for money for your processing line.
Vertical or Horizontal Electrolytic Cleaning section
To allow a good layer adhesion onto the strip surface, oil and fines are removed thanks to adequate cleaning definition in association with process technology. Thanks to the improved technology of different cleaning section designs (spray, “V” shape and electrolytic, vertical tank and electrolytic), our electrolytic cleaning section help you optimize the consumption of utilities and reduce waste.
Skin-pass mill and tension leveller
Our solution range encompasses skin-pass mills and tension levelers that cover all applications. With rolling force capacity ranging from 400 to 1,500 tons, skin-pass mill stands can be of two-high, four-high or six-high design – thus providing a best-in-class solution, whatever your application.
Turret-type side trimmer
Primetals Technologies innovative side trimmers dedicated to annealing application are called ST21M. Coming in turret or single head type, they can also feature options like the Dynamic Width Adjustment (DWA) and/or the EdgeMon system. Our single-stand or turret or dual shifting scrap choppers SC21M are designed to ensure the highest quality cutting and strongest availability. The pertinent choice of drum diameter and number of knives ensures the longest running time available in the market. Close association of side trimmer and SC21 scrap chopper is a guarantee for a best scrap disposal and lowest cobble ratio.
PropertyMon® – Inline Mechanical Properties Measurement System
With Primetals Technologies inline and real time measuring system for continuous annealing lines, steel producers can not only determine mechanical properties (tensile and yield strength) but also steel magnetic behaviour in a non destructive way. The specific sensor head design and associated innovative signal processing ensure highest results guarantees.
SIAS® – automated surface inspection system
The perfect tool to guarantee you a defect-free surface condition of the processed steel strip. SIAS will detect and identify critical defects, for deep-drawing applications such as fine slivers, holes or scratches, as well as coating defects. The tiniest defects such as arc spots, may be detected even at maximum speed. At the continuous annealing line, SIAS prevents defective materials from being further processed at the electrolytic galvanizing line or in any other downstream process.
TCO® – Total Cost Optimizer
The TCOptimizer offers the means to secure the production by keeping an eye on all the signals of the whole metallurgical route (from casting to downstream process) and triggering just-in-time alarms against performance degradation regarding equipment conditions, process and product quality. TCOptimizer helps you also to better control your consummables (ex: reducing gas consumption by furnace temperature optimization) in order to reduce costs.
Condition monitoring system
With the inline measuring system for pickling lines, steel producers can determine mechanical properties (tensile and yield strength) in a non-destructive way. The process can be optimized effectively and quality can be guaranteed. In comparison to time-consuming destructive testing, PropertyMon continuously inspects the product, informs of any process deviations and avoids customer claims.
