CMC Sees Successful Upgrade of California Rolling Mill 

3/13/2020 - Italy’s Automazioni Industriali Capitanio (AIC) has wrapped up upgrades to Commercial Metal Company’s (CMC) California rolling mill, the company has announced. 

As part of the project, AIC replaced the drives on the No. 1 shear and the Nos. 5 and 6 rolling stands. It also upgraded the automation and control system.  AIC said that, in essence, any obsolete system covered under the scope of supply was replaced, leading to reduction in operating expenses. 

“The commissionings have also gone very smoothly, every single one,” said CMC’s Raymond Terry, who coordinated the rolling mill improvements.
