GRAZ, NOVEMBER 15, 2021. International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from AMAG Rolling GmbH, a member of the Austrian company AMAG GROUP. ANDRITZ will supply a new strip pickling line for AMAG Rolling’s facility in Ranshofen. The new strip pickling line #2, with planned annual production of 30,000 tons (gross), will go into operation in mid-2023.
ANDRITZ will supply the complete strip pickling line as well as a new, integrated wastewater treatment plant. The order includes design, engineering, delivery, installation, start-up, and optimization of production.
An autonomous coil transport brings the coils to the line. Then it collects the coils produced. Metris Intelligent Coil is an innovative, digital solution developed by ANDRITZ Automation. It logs all coil-specific production data and provides support in optimizing quality and productivity. Furthermore it does so in achieving and verifying sustainability goals (CO2 footprint, consumption of resources).
Strip pickling line allows flexible changes in production
The new equipment technology with a highly efficient spray pickling system is designed for both hot-rolled and cold-rolled strip in order to cover the broad product portfolio of AMAG Rolling. Special focus lies on careful production of bright products. The new strip pickling line allows fast product changes and hence, very flexible production planning.
The award of this order to ANDRITZ underlines the many years of successful collaboration between these two prestigious Austrian companies. Following several plant modernization and production expansion projects, this new strip pickling line with its special wastewater treatment plant is now the next step in this long-term business relationship.
