POMINI Long Rolling Mills modernizes a rolling mill in the Far East
POMINI Long Rolling Mills has been contracted by Han Tai & Iron Works Co., Ltd. (Taiwan R.O.C.) for the modernization of its rolling mill.
The existing rolling mill was supplied by POMINI Long Rolling Mills in the 1990s and is equipped with sixteen housing-less RedRing stands. This modernization project will add two finishing horizontal RedRing rolling stands of the same series. This will enable the customer to roll in 2-slit mode bars with 10 mm diameter starting from a 150 mm square billet. The supply will include some additionally required equipment as uploopers, rolling guides, hydraulic valve stands and operational change parts, while the existing fluid systems and roll change equipment will be reutilized. POMINI Long Rolling Mills will also provide advisory services for erection and commissioning. The hot commissioning of the modernized mill is expected to start in mid-2023.
Established in 1960 in Kaohsiung City (Taiwan R.O.C.), Han Tai & Iron Works Co., Ltd. is a primary producer of reinforcement bars of the region, with an annual production capacity around 400,000 tons. Its product portfolio includes bars with diameter from 10 to 35 mm, manufactured in accordance to CNS and ASTM standards.
