SMS delivers rolling mill to Bulgarian manufacturer

Bulgarian aluminium product manufacturer Alcomet AD, located in Shumen, has awarded SMS group the order to supply a flexible, modern cold rolling mill for the production of a wide range of high-quality aluminium strips. SMS group will manufacture all mechanical key components in their workshops in Germany.

Alcomet is a leading supplier of rolled and extruded aluminium products in Eastern Europe thanks to the company’s 35 years of experience in non-ferrous metallurgy. The current portfolio of rolled products comprises foil stock for containers and household use, technological foils, sheet and strips for coolers, heat exchangers and for construction. The company uses in-house cast strip of alloy series 1xxx, 3xxx and 8xxx as input material.

The new cold rolling mill from SMS, which will be of the proven CVCplus six-high design, is an allrounder. It will offer Alcomet to diversify the product range and enhance the product quality. Top quality of the up to 2.2-m-wide and 0.15-mm-thin strip will be ensured by the tried and tested interaction between CVC and a comprehensive range of further actuators, all of which are coordinated by the SMS group’s automation and control system AluControl. A Multi-Plate filter, one of the SMS group’s ecoplants modules, will provide for ecological and economical treatment of the rolling oil.

“Our project had started out with the plan to revamp an existing cold rolling mill and evolved into building a new rolling mill of the latest design, which allows us to meet our customers’ future demands“, says Huseyin Yorucu, Alcomet AD, Chairman of the Management Board.
