German Mill Chooses Primetals' Wear Plate Solution

2/9/2017 - ArcelorMittal’s Eisenhüttenstadt plan in Germany is installing Primetals Technologies’ rotatable Eco Slide Discs on a hot strip mill coiler, according to a statement from the mill builder.
“The wear discs are mounted vertically between the table rollers and are automatically and synchronously rotated by a selectable angle after a variable number of strip sequences have passed,” Primetals said.

“With conventional wear plates, the strip always cuts into the plate at the same point, whereas with Eco Slide Discs, the wear is distributed evenly around the entire surface of the circular disc.”

Primetals said the discs will be installed on the coiler’s entry side.
