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 up-time, 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, 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.
Primetals Technologies has installed or upgraded more than 500 rolling mills on six continents. These mills have set worldwide benchmarks for technological leadership, reliability and performance.
Rod rolling processing
High speed, high production capacity and reliability are critically important on the finishing end of your rod mill. Primetals Technologies supplies the Morgan Vee No-Twist Mill, Morgan Mini-Block, Morgan High Speed Laying Head and Intelligent Pinch Roll, and the Morgan High Speed Shear, providing the flexibility to produce a wide range of sizes and steel qualities with the best possible product dimensional accuracy. To meet the unique demands of the non-ferrous market, we supply entry shears, intermediate shears, rolling stands and finishing blocks.
Rod sizing technology
With two decades of operational know-how on more than 60 installed strands, our engineers have advanced the Morgan Rod Reducing/Sizing Mill into the most versatile, sought after rolling technology available for close-tolerance products and thermomechanical rolling.
Using Morgan Water Boxes and the Morgan Stelmor controlled cooling conveyor system allows processing of a wide range of steel grades and enables thermomechanical rolling. We also offer pickling lines for cooling during copper and aluminum rod production.
