Hot roughing mill

This is one of the world's largest hot-rolling mills, measuring 400 meters in length and 4.3 meters wide. An AGC system is used to automatically control sheet thickness, ensuring that the resulting sheets are of high quality.

The thick plates that this mill produces are used to build wide LNG tankers and in aerospace applications, among others. Thin sheets are processed and shaped for a range of uses, including can stock.
