D-SWAP: emergency machinery and equipment on hire for long-product rolling mills
Danieli courtesy machine made available in just three days at Riva Sam Montreau
D-SWAP is the new, exclusive Danieli Service offering for long-product mill users to reduce plant downtimes caused by unexpected problems or breakdowns, as well as scheduled plant refurbishments.
In case of unplanned events or during an overhauling activity of a machine or part of it, Danieli Service is capable to support customers by providing courtesy machinery as a replacement for original ones, making the functionality of the production line possible again.
Presently this service is available from Danieli Headquarters and can serve customers within Europe in just three days, with components and machinery for long-product rolling mills such as ESS mandrels and cantilever stands, fast-finishing block mandrels, and pinch rolls.
In a near future the same service will be made available for customers worldwide through the Danieli manufacturing and service center network.
Recently, the Riva plant of Sam Montreau, France, had to stop the production due to a breakdown in an ESS rolling mill stand. Danieli Service supported the client, delivering the courtesy machine on site in three working days, allowing production to restart and operation during ESS stand repair.
D-SWAP is a further “Danieli Answer” aiming to improve plant competitiveness.
