PRESS RELEASE

Automazioni Industriali Capitanio (AIC) completed the coil-handling modernization of the Wire Rod Rolling Mill at Feralpi Siderurgica in Lonato (BS), Italy.

Besides a complete revamping of the wire rod finishing area with electrical and automation (E&A) supply from laying head exit to coil management, AIC has covered the modernization and installation of a new coil lowering station and the extension of the coil handling area with a new trimming machine designed according to an upgraded continuous process due to a new welder machine. AIC was also involved in installation supervision and commissioning phases within the project schedule.

Completed in January 2020, the commissioning included:
• New power control panels suited with ABB drives for the management of the coil cooling conveyor, the Laying head and coil handling area;
• Rockwell PLC and Safety PLC cabinets, main and local control desks;
• New Safety system suited with safety boxes, released keys and access control functions.

The coil-handling upgrade improves the safety of operators, optimizes and increases the production capacity and flexibility due to the production of wire rod according to the weight requested by the client.
