Hot Dip Galvanizing Line Upgrade for Salzgitter

Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH, the biggest subsidiary of the Salzgitter Group, awarded BWG Bergwerk- und Walzwerk-Maschinenbau GmbH with an order to partly modernise its existing hot dip galvanizing line no. 1, for which final acceptance was recently granted.

The objective of the modernisation was to increase product quality.

After a short standstill for the upgrade, the first strip was successfully trimmed mid-2016.

The scope of supply included the complete mechanical line equipment for a new horizontal strip accumulator, a new high-precision side trimming shear with scrap cutter and scrap removal system, additional bridle roll sets and strip centre guide systems. In addition to the supply, installation and commissioning of the line equipment, BWG’s scope included the dismantling of redundant line parts. The electrical equipment and the automatization, including controls, process controls and safety technology, were integrated into the existing control technology.

Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH therefore now uses BWG’s proven side trimming technology, as already successfully in operation in other hot dip galvanizing lines for automotive strip of competitor firms.
