Primetals Technologies has received an order from Simec to revamp the company’s merchant bar mill in Mexicali in the Mexican State of Baja California.

Primetals Technologies will be responsible for engineering the new roughing train and the new handling area, and supply the required process equipment as well as electrics and automation.

The mechanical supply includes core equipment for the 60 t/h pusher-type reheating furnace and the furnace charging and discharging areas. The new six-stand roughing train will replace the existing three-high stand.

Hot commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2019.
