German re-roller Stahlwerk Annahütte Max Aicher GmbH & Co. KG (Stahlwerk Annahütte) completed the revamp of its long steel products rolling mill in Ainring-Hammerau, Bavaria, according to a statement released on Primetals Technologies on October 29.
The project included the modernization of Stahlwerk Annahütte’s intermediate rolling train by replacing two existing stands (Red Ring Series 1) with the latest models (Red Ring Series 5), and was completed in August.
The new stands designed and installed by Primetals allow for shorter change times and offer a prolonged lifetime of wear components, which is expected to improve mill operations, efficiency, and future maintenance.
The long rolling mill at Stahlwerk Annahütte has a design production annual capacity of 240,000mt. It processes square billets with dimensions of 160×160 and 178x178mm.
Steel grades include carbon, quality, alloyed and non-alloyed steels. Finished products are thread and plain round bars with diameters ranging from 12 to 75mm.
