AHMSA starts operation of normalizing line supplied by Primetals Technologies

Print

In May, the first plate was processed on a normalizing line supplied by Primetals Technologies to Mexican steel producer Altos Hornos de México S.A.B de C.V. (AHMSA). The line installed in the Monclova works, originally designed for 200,000 metric tons per year had already been ordered from Primetals Technologies in October 2013. A supplementary order received in 2014 included a capacity increase to 300,000 metric tons per year. Right from the processing of the first plate, most components of the line operated in fully automatic mode.
