FEBRUARY 2017 - Danieli FATA Hunter secures two orders in Romania

On 7th February 2017 S.C. ALRO and Danieli FATA Hunter signed two contracts, the first one for the installation of a new plate stretcher and the second one for the upgrade of the cold rolling mill No.2 (CM2).

The new 18MN aluminium plate stretcher represents the most modern Danieli FATA Hunter technology for high quality aluminium plate process ensuring fast start-up and smooth impact for the environment. The supply will include mechanical auxiliary and complete automation system. This facility will be built in Slatina town, Romania.

The plate stretcher shall be used for processing products of very thin plate with high surface quality and high performance requirement for alloys series 1xxx to 7xxx for application ranging from aerospace to marine, defence and commercial transportation.

Plant start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2018.

Danieli FATA Hunter has had a long and successful history with ALRO starting in the early 1970's when we supplied three twin roll casters, a cold rolling mill and two foil rolling mills and continued in 2007 with the upgrade of the cold rolling mill. This new project to upgrade the cold mill No.2 (CM2) will further continue this almost 50-year long relationship.

Thanks to Danieli FATA Hunter's supply that will include a complete package of mechanical, fluids, automation and electrical systems as well as the complete supervision of the installation and commissioning, ALRO CM2 will achieve the following goals:

- To greatly improve the sheet gauge and flatness tolerances to current industry standards
- To increase productivity
- To increase mill reliability
- To improve strip dryness.

ALRO is Romania's largest aluminium company whose primary facilities are located in Slatina. These projects will provide them with modern, reliable and easily maintained equipment with excellent performance thus ensuring their position as predominant suppliers of aluminium sheet products.
