Henan Mingtai Al. Industrial has granted SMS group the final acceptance certificate for the new aluminium cold rolling mill established at the Gongyi location in China. The company started the regular operation soon after a short and efficient commissioning and ramp-up phase.
The six-high cold rolling mill with CVCplus (Continuously Variable Crown) rolls a wide range of materials and alloys up to a maximum strip width of 2,650 mm. The portfolio includes, for example, sophisticated material grades and qualities for automotive body application. Henan Mingtai now owns a high-yield mill producing strips of excellent quality and featuring the most advanced rolling technology, with core components, including CVCplus technology for roll shifting and the new inductive and particularly energy-efficient roll barrel heating system.
