Primetals Technologies receives additional modernization order for Çemtaş bar rolling mill in Turkey


Turkish steel producer Çelik Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. (Çemtaş) has awarded Primetals

Technologies another order to modernize its bar rolling mill in Bursa. The rolling mill will be equipped

with new dividing and handling systems. The new hot dividing shear allows the use of the longer 200 mm

billets in production, the new abrasive disk saw is able to cut wider layers of bars and a new automatic

bundling and packing system replaces a manually operated system. With these measures, existing

systems can be used more efficiently and current productivity limitations can be overcome. The

modernization is due to be finished in the fourth quarter of 2017.
