Annealing & galvanizing lines: automotive steels
Fives developed the NeoKoil® strip processing lines: continuous annealing lines (CAL), continuous galvanizing lines (CGL) and continuous annealing & galvanizing lines (CAGL) to produce high-strength steels (HSS), including AHSS and UHSS for the automotive industry. For demanding applications Eyeron™, a digital and real time quality management tool, is available to provide unlimited data collection for unlimited users.
Over the last 15 years, Fives has completed more than 50 new processing lines and furnaces for annealing and galvanizing processes around the world.
Entry coil handling section
The entry coil handling section is engineered to handle the coil very carefully, ensuring minimal waste and optimal product quality. It includes entry coil skid and car, pay off reel, threading pinch roll and flattener, shearing section (entry shear and scrap evacuation system) and coil joining section (welder and notcher).
Fives' degreasing system utilizes a combination of chemical, mechanical and electrolytic degreasing processes. Electrolytic degreasing process is used for exposed automotive coils or when the highest level of cleanliness is required. It's also an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective operation system.
For complex thermal cycles and demanding applications such as automotive steel, the thermal part includes Stein Digiflex® furnace, FlashCooling®, CELES inductors and Virtuo® solution to deliver the best product quality with minimum OPEX and emissions.
Aeris®, after-pot cooling technology, is an efficient and flexible cooling system that improves strip stability by enabling the reduction of the cooling length. It can be applied to dry (air) or wet (water) processes to cool the strip, reducing cooling length while maintaining capacity.
Skin-pass and strip leveler
DMS skin-pass mills coupled with DMS strip levelers are suitable for a wide variety of annealed and galvanized steel products from very low to very high strengths. They achieve the proper elongation and improve strip flatness in continuous strip processing lines.
Post treatment, hot air or induction
Fives provides post treatment solutions, including Stein drying ovens and CELES induction heaters to process high quality strip coating for different applications: automotive, construction, home appliances and white goods.
Exit coil handling section
Fives’ mechanical solutions, including side trimming and SIS tuning for the exit coil handling section ensure minimized waste and achieve the desired throughput.
