Drawing on more than a century of experience and proven solutions, Primetals Technologies has the answers to complex and diverse market demands – from the smallest upgrade to the greatest technical challenges for high-speed and special steel grade products. With our world-class equipment, processes and design tools, we set benchmarks for rolling long products. We offer worldwide proven and extensively preconfigured solutions, including modular standard packages as well as global and intelligent service concepts for the entire equipment lifecycle.

Bar Mill - Solutions to ensure high durability and maximum availability

Bar Mill - Solutions to ensure high durability and maximum availability

Systems and components are designed for high durability and maximum operation uptime, to meet the specific requirements of productivity, tolerance, surface finish and metallurgical quality.

Red Ring rolling stands are suitable for use in a wide range of situations. Multi-slit and high-speed technologies ensure that the requirements of high productivity of rebars are safely and efficiently guaranteed. Through bar-in-coil operation by V+ coilers, compact and twist free coils of bars and convex shapes are produced. State-of-the-art cooling technologies are available, for controlling the distortion of merchant bars, for thermo-mechanical rolling and for quenching & tempering both carbon and alloy grades, including stainless. The 2+4 EVO reducing and sizing mill further improves the dimensional accuracy of SBQ bars with a better control of metallurgical structure.

Rod Mill Equipment - The most reliable and innovative technology from a single source

Rod Mill Equipment - The most reliable and innovative technology from a single source

Speed, reliability and process flexibility are key to productive rod rolling operations - for high volume small sizes, maximum uptime, and multiple sizes/grades with quality tolerances, metallurgical and surface properties.

As long rolling’s technology pioneers, Primetals Technologies applies knowledge and experience to supply your ferrous and non-ferrous mill’s best solution. The leading provider of efficient wire rod mill technology with Morgan Vee No-Twist® Mills, Red Ring Stands, Morgan Reducing/Sizing Mills, controlled cooling systems and thermomechanical rolling, we offer finishing blocks plus our High Speed Trim Shear and Morgan High Speed Laying Head to roll reliably at high speeds for superior coil packages. For more difficult steel grades, our versatile Morgan Stelmor conveyor system creates a wide range of cooling conditions. Our coil reforming, handling and compacting systems deliver the highest quality coil for demanding markets.

Section Mill - Solutions to ensure high durability and maximum availability

Section Mill - Solutions to ensure high durability and maximum availability

A complete technology portfolio for light, medium and heavy sections, rails and special shapes. Tailored solutions for applications ranging from construction and building to railways for high-speed and heavy-haul transport.

Universal stands with no-housing or housing design provide high rigidity in a compact structure. 3+1 tandem mills increase the yearly productivity in a small installation space. Change-over times are reduced to a minimum by automated change systems. Reversing flat rolling blocks allows the production of a large range of flat-bars, without need of any roll change. Horizontal and vertical straightening systems remove the deformations caused by asymmetrical cooling effects. Stacking systems provide adjustable and flexible operation to process different lengths. Inline cooling technologies improve the mechanical characteristics of medium-large sections and reduce its residual stresses, without expensive alloying elements. The idRHa+ inline and flexible rail hardening system applies defined cooling protocols to obtain the controlled microstructure and hardness distribution required by premium rails.

Endless Rolling

Endless Rolling

The cutting-edge technologies and processes for efficient rolling of long products.

From the Winlink direct rolling to the ​ERT-EBROS billet welding, the processes and technologies for endless rolling of long products can play an important role in minimizing the consumption of energy, improving product consistency, and maximizing yield.

Efficient Heating System

Efficient Heating System

EHS allow increased energy efficiency in the rolling operation, and improves flexibility.

The Efficient Heating System (EHS) is a flexible plant solution which maximizes the efficiency of the billet pre-heating by combining different energy sources. The process route is tailored to local energy cost patterns and source availability. The electric heating through high-performance induction units allows a significant reduction of scale generation.
