Fives Supplies Electric Steel Cold Rolling Mills to Baowu

7/13/2022 - China's Baowu Group contracted global industrial engineering group Fives for the design and supply of two reversible cold rolling mills with automatic roll change for production of electric steel at Baoshan and Wuhan production sites.

Fives will supply two DMS 20Hi EcoMill for grain-oriented (GO) with high permeability (HiB) and non-grain oriented (NGO) electric steel, the company said in a press release.
The scope of supply also includes RollBot™ fully automatic roll change system, which performs “fast, precise and safe roll change with no manual intervention,” according to Fives.
"This project is a significant step in our collaboration, with perfect combination of Baowu’s manufacturing experience and Fives’ know-how in cold rolling mill engineering," said Gabriel Poullet, chief executive of Fives DMS. “RollBot technology, recently designed by our engineers, is able to automatically replace any type of rolls and avoid any safety risk. We are confident that our technologies will bring a great success to this important project,” he adds.
