Primetals Technologies to introduce new light-duty Hyper UC-mill designed for thinner building materials at SUNSCO in Vietnam

Vietnamese steel producer Maruichi Sun Steel Joint Stock Company (SUNSCO) is in a deal with Primetals Technologies to introduce light-duty Hyper Universal Crown-mill (Hyper UC-mill) at a SUNSCO production site in Binh Duong Province in Vietnam. This mill will be installed as its first application in Vietnam. It is a compact, light duty type of Hyper UC-mill, a RCM, employing smaller diameter work rolls, thus reducing rolling loads. It allows the production of thinner materials of high quality at fewer costs. Also, the mill concept saves investment and maintenance costs. The solution set up at SUNSCO will be the first case of Hyper UC-mill to expand the original mill concept to the production of thinner and soft material by using optimized roll forces. The new mill will enable SUNSCO to build a stable position in the market with the growing demand for thinner materials for the building and construction industries. Under the climatic conditions prevalent in Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam, thinner sheet-based roof materials need to be replaced regularly and are therefore in high demand. The challenge is to produce building materials durable and of high quality, but with continually reduced thickness to save costs.
