Inauguration of BILSTEIN COLD ROLLED STEEL
The 21st September 2017 was a very special day for the BILSTEIN GROUP, because the opening of the new plant BILSTEIN COLD ROLLED STEEL in Bowling Green was celebrated. As representatives of the Georg company Mark Georg, Antonio Garcia, Dr. Carsten Preis and Axel Sturm joined the ceremony.
From this location BILSTEIN GROUP will supply the North American market with high-quality cold rolled steel.
Ground breaking of this new BILSTEIN GROUP facility took place at the end of 2015. Meanwhile the plant consisting of cold-rolling mill, batch annealing line and finishing area has been completed, the latter including a slitting line and coil packaging line of the Georg company in Kreuztal.
The celebration started with the welcome of the guests at 11:30 a.m. After the on-site visit to the plant and a common lunch the ceremony started.
Besides the management of BILSTEIN GROUP, the staff involved in this project and suppliers and partners of BILSTEIN COLD ROLLED STEEL, the governor of Kentucky, Mr. Matt Bevin, was among the guests.
The ceremony ended with the cutting of the ribbon as a symbol for the inauguration of the plant.
The order for the slitting line and coil packaging line was already placed with Georg in April 2016. This slitting line has been manufactured for processing hard-rolled steel coils with a maximum yield limit of 1,200 N/mm2 and a weight of 32 t. Furthermore the line has been designed for 1,370 mm width and a maximum thickness of 5.0 mm with the possibility of processing up to 30 cuts. The maximum line speed is 400 m/min.
The processed steel material is mainly used in the automotive supply industry.
Successful commission of TBA400 at Lemi
TBA400 with high-speed configuration at our long-standing customer Lemi Trafo JSC.
Together with one slitting line which was put into operation a few weeks ago, the new TBA400 expands Lemi's machine park and supports their growth strategy.
The benefits of pin stacker technology for the distribution transformer production can also be gained from a Transformer Magazine article 'Demand driven core production' we published recently.
Finally, a special congratulations to our technicians and also to our customer’s employees for carrying out the commissioning in record time.
