Indonesian Mill Signs Off on Skinpass Mill Improvement

3/18/2020 - An Indonesian steelmaker has signed the final acceptance certificate for an overhaul of its hot skinpass mill, according to contractor Danieli Automation. 

In a statement, Danieli said the mill's contractual top speed was reached just 10 days after the line restarted.

“The turnkey modernization by Danieli Automation included new AC drives and a new automation control system to ease and reduce maintenance requirements and enhance the line's performance,” Danieli said. “The new drives are more user-friendly and introduce power-recovery capability (regenerative DC Link) that improves mill performance and reduces power consumption.”
