  • First reverse cold mill worldwide upgraded to Hyper UC-mill by Primetals Technologies started up at Masteel

    In August, the first coil was produced on a reverse cold mill (RCM) modernized by Primetals Technologies at the cold rolling plant of Chinese steel producer Magang (Group) Holding Co (Masteel). The mill at the Maanshan production site represents the first upgrade to a Hyper Universal Crown (UC)-mill worldwide and was officially inaugurated later that month. Hyper UC-mills employ smaller diameter work rolls, thus reducing rolling loads. This allows for the production of harder and thinner materials with improved product quality. In addition, the mill concept saves investment and maintenance costs. The upgrade enables Masteel to meet the growing demand for electrical steels spurred by increasing requirements for end uses in e.g. vehicle electrification. Primetals Technologies had received the order to revamp the RCM in April 2017.
