Mino SpA in Italy has again been awarded the supply of a foil mill to Yinbang Aluminium Co. Ltd.
Already in 2013 Yinbang Aluminium has ordered a 2,500-mm, 6-high cold rolling mill, and a foil mill in 2014. The new foil mill will be installed in Yinbang’s the new Wuxi production facility.
Yinbang Aluminium, established back in 1988, is today specializing in the production of aluminium clad material, multi-metal clad material and non-clad aluminium material for the automotive, aircraft, power plant, machinery and home appliance industries.
The new foil mill will be provided with the latest Mino’s technologies developed for foil rolling, including its high performance AFC/AGC process control system and its hot edge spray system, which has been specifically designed to relieve high tensile stress at the strip edges, allowing to achieve higher rolling speeds. Advanced electro/mechanical solutions allow for tension control at reels over an extremely broad range of strip thicknesses and widths.
