The new Self-Annealing Microrolling® process by Properzi presented in Düsseldorf

The international wire and Tube trade fair is approaching! It will take place in Düsseldorf from April 16 to April 20, 2018. Every two years the event involves world-renowned specialists, technical experts and anyone who has something to present related to the wire industry.

In fact, Continuus-Properzi will be presenting its latest innovation: a new process called S.A.M. (Self-Annealing Microrolling®), based on a specialized Properzi Microrolling® mill, to go from 8 mm copper rod to wire with a minimum size of 1.8 mm. Using the motor's power, the machine reduces the wire diameter but also anneals the wire saving half of the energy required by the traditional rod breakdown operation. Properzi's technical staff will be glad to introduce it to the visitors at stand G40 Hall 11.

The Properzi organization provides unparalleled continuous casting and rolling technology for the production of aluminium and copper wire rod on a global basis. The copper rod can be produced from either copper cathodes or 100% low quality copper scrap to yield top quality copper rod. The product line also includes machinery for the production of nonferrous ingots with the Track & Belt system. The product line is complemented by the offerings of the Wire Machinery Division which include newly designed drawing lines for high carbon, stainless steel, and AS wire, as well as complete PC Strand lines, PC Wire lines, and Steel Rope lines.

Furthermore, in 2014 Properzi added Continuous Rotary Extrusion technology and equipment to its product offering. It is marketed under the Pro-Form brand name which stands for Properzi Forming.

A business relationship with Properzi guarantees the following advantages:
- specialized engineering for layouts, foundation drawings, etc., and for tailoring special technical solutions, if requested
- tailor-made machinery designed for life
- lowest OpEx (Operational Expenditures)
- highest OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency)
- first-class components (hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, etc.) and user-friendly control system
- high rod quality and high grade of repeatability of the quality
- flexible machinery
- incomparable technical assistance for training, commissioning and start-up

Last but not least, Properzi is available to supply each plant on an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) basis so that the buyer is only minimally involved with the installation; in other words... Properzi's equipment can also be supplied on a turnkey basis.
