Primetals Technologies has been contracted by Acciaierie Venete S.p.A. for the modernization of the finishing train of the rolling mill installed in Mura (BS), Italy. The project comprises the replacement of eight existing housing-type rolling stands with modern housing-less type Red Ring Series 5 units, which are lighter and more conveniently movable from the rolling line to the workshop and vice versa.
The new Red Ring stands will allow significantly shorter change times, and will make the maintenance operations easier and quicker. The series 5 of the Red Ring stands offers a prolonged lifetime of wear components. Existing rolling rolls and guiding equipment will be reutilized.
Acciaierie Venete S.p.A. is headquartered in Padua. It first began producing steel in 1957 operating in the field of ingots, billets and rebars. It is now one of Europe’s leading producers in the engineering steel market.
With an annual production capacity of 1.8 million ton, Acciaierie Venete employs some 1,400 personnel and operates ten plants for the production and transformation of steel.
