BWG gets its first order for a line upgrade in India

BWG Bergwerk- und Walzwerk-Maschinenbau GmbH, headquartered in Duisburg, Germany, is one of the world‘s leading suppliers of innovative strip processing lines for the steel and non-ferrous metal industries.

Hindalco Industrial Limited, India, a company of the Aditya Birla Group, entrusted BWG with the modernization of a tension levelling line that had been installed at itsTaloja works, near Mumbai (Maharashtra) in 2004.

The modernisation by BWG aims to eliminate a critical weak spot of the existing line concept: the amount of scrap length that builds up during coil change, enabling the line to produce premium lithographic plate for the printing industry. In preparation of this ambitious upgrade, BWG engineers visited the line and identified additional areas that require upgrading.

In the course of the modernisation, the tension levelling line will be equipped with a semi-automatic taping device for strip connection, a notcher, a high-precision thin-film side trimming shear, new strip tension measurements, additional auxiliary equipment to the strip cleaning section (including a new dryer), a horizontal exit accumulator and a coil starting station specifically developed for lithographic production.

The line parts will be shipped at the end of 2016 and installed in several steps prior to conjoint commissioning.
