After supply orders to Danieli for a hot rolling mill and a plate stretcher for the AMAG 2014 project, Austria’s leading aluminium producer recently decided to rely again on Danieli’s technological expertise. Danieli Fröhling, known as specialist for high-performance cutting and finishing lines for aluminium strip, will supply a coil preparation station and a slitting line for the AMAG 2020 investment programme. The equipment to be supplied will be used to prepare coils received from the cold mill and remove strip with undesired thickness variations both from head and tail end. Subsequently, these coils will be processed on a dedicated slitting line that will be able to slit the material into up to 4 finished strips. The large thickness range, many different finished strip widths and the big variety of alloys make it necessary to design a slitting line that is both extremely flexible as well as fast in threading and programme change times and at the same time provides smooth strip handling for sensitive alloys to keep the mechanical properties of strip as desired. Danieli Fröhling’s order includes all technological equipment, auxiliary units, scrap handling systems as well as electrics and automation. The complete erection and commissioning is part of the scope. The lines shall be in production in 2017.
