Fives Lands Order for Precision Cold Mill
In a statement, Fives, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, said the DMS 20Hi EcoMill is being designed to produce 50,000 metric tons annually for the automotive, electronics and photovoltaic panel markets. It will be able to roll strip down to 0.03 mm over the width of the 1,040 mm strip, Fives said.
The cold rolling mills are essential to reduce strip thickness while guaranteeing strip surface quality. With more than 100 references worldwide over last 60 years, Fives’ range of DMS 20Hi cold rolling mills (CRM) is proven for applications in stainless and silicon steels, as well as for nonferrous materials.
“The latest developments for the DMS 20Hi EcoMill include increased rolling speed, new design of strip and work roll spraying, new strip wipers, improvements for fume exhaust, and a cutting-edge concept for flatness actuators and mandrel greasing,” the company said.
The mill is scheduled to begin production by the end of 2020.
