Ferrostaal supplies Achenbach rolling mills to China
In conjunction with its long-standing technology partner Achenbach Buschhütten, Ferrostaal AG is supplying, monitoring the assembly of and commissioning a foil rolling line for aluminium foils that measure two metres wide. Completion of the three rolling mills, which can produce up to 2,000 metres of foil per minute, is scheduled for late 2011.
The customer is the national Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co. in Luoyang, China. The new plant will enable the company to mill the aluminium down to a thickness of just six micrometres At the same time, this will permit the quality required for Tetra Pak® to be achieved.
Joachim Ludwig, member of the Ferrostaal Executive Board, comments: “This joint order is another important step in our long-standing co-operation with Achenbach. In the last ten years, we have supplied around 20 rolling mills in China. In addition, last year we took over the exclusive marketing of Achenbach products in numerous countries in North and South America.”
