Primetals Technologies has modernized a reverse cold mill at Masteel’s production site in Maanshan.

The mill is the first upgrade to a Hyper Universal Crown (UC)-mill which employs smaller diameter work rolls, allowing for the production of harder and thinner materials with improved product quality.

The upgraded mill now processes silicon steel grades with product thicknesses of between 0.3 and 0.65 mm in a width range of 900 to 1,280 mm.
