This mill plays a pivotal role in producing 500,000 tons per year of bars and wire rods that serve the construction, agricultural, energy, machinery, and consumer goods industries.The primary objectives of this revamping project are to optimize the mill's rolling performance and update its hardware to ensure increased plant availability. To achieve these goals, several key enhancements are planned.One significant improvement involves the installation of new low-voltage inverter drives for the mill's roughing and intermediate sections. These drives are expected to improve operational efficiency and plant maintainability, contributing to a smoother and more streamlined production process.Moreover, special attention is being directed towards the reheating furnace, where billets from the local melt shop are heated to precise rolling temperatures. To facilitate this critical process, both hardware and software for the Level 1 automation system will be upgraded. Additionally, a state-of-the-art process control system will be introduced to automate the setup of heating curves in the furnace. This will not only enhance precision but also improve the overall control and consistency of the heating process.The revamping project is well underway and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Once finalized, it promises to deliver increased efficiency, higher product quality, and improved overall performance for CMC Poland's steel production operations.Conclusion:CMC Poland's decision to revamp its rolling mill with the expertise of Danieli Automation marks a significant step towards enhancing its steel production capabilities. With a focus on optimizing rolling performance and updating crucial hardware and automation systems, this project holds the promise of improved efficiency, product quality, and overall plant availability. As the upgrade progresses, CMC Poland is positioning itself for a more competitive and sustainable future in the steel industry.
