Order from Korea: Siemens extends Novelis Aluminum rolling mill in Ulsan

Siemens VAI Metals Technologies has received an order from Novelis Korea Ltd. to extend its aluminum rolling mill in Ulsan. To this end, a three-stand finishing line will be added to the plant.

The project is aimed at boosting capacity and enabling future production of high-grade aluminum strip. The order volume is in the two-digit euro millions. The first strip is already to be rolled in July 2013.

Up to now, the aluminum hot rolling mill operated by Novelis in the Korean city of Ulsan consisted of a single reversing stand with two coilers and the necessary secondary systems. The rolling mill was equipped by Siemens in 1993. Siemens is supplying the mechanical and electrical equipment for the new, three-stand tandem rolling mill including a coiler and a coil handling system. In future, the existing reversing stand will function as a roughing mill. Lightweight cropping shears will also be installed in the entry to the finishing line.
