New reversing cold mill from Primetals Technologies produces first coil at Tyasa


In January, the reversing cold rolling mill supplied by Primetals Technologies to TA 2000, S.A. de

C.V.(Tyasa), a Mexican steel producer, has been brought into operation and the first coil was rolled in

Tyasa´s production plant in Ixtaczoquitlan. The cold rolling mill is another element in Tyasa's strategy of

extending its portfolio to include flat products. The mill is designed for an annual production of 200,000

metric tons of low-carbon and high-strength steel grades. The reversing cold rolling mill is designed as a

single stand four-high mill, will handle a wide range of end products, and is particularly suitable for small

batches. The process equipment and technology packages not only maintain tight flatness and thickness

tolerances but also ensure a good quality surface. The compact design minimizes the out-of-tolerance

strip thickness. The project was completed on schedule within 21 months.
