Further order: Primetals Technologies to modernize block milling machine for AMAG rolling in Austria


AMAG rolling GmbH, an aluminum producer, has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to

modernize the block milling machine at its Ranshofen plant in Austria. This involves renewing the

electrical and automation equipment as well as replacing some components of the secondary plant

equipment and adding some new ones. The safety equipment will also be brought up to the state of the

art. The goals of the modernization are to simplify maintenance, increase availability and bring the safety

equipment up to the requirements of the machine safety ordinance by using standardized solutions. The

project is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of 2018. Primetals Technologies had already

carried out modernization projects on the hot rolling mill of AMAG rolling in previous years.
