ANDRITZ starts up new surface treatment line for aluminum strip at AMAG


International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully completed the delivery, installation, and start-up of the new continuous surface treatment line and integrated wastewater treatment plant at AMAG rolling GmbH in Ranshofen, Austria.

The modern line with exclusively electric heating and advanced digitalization strengthens AMAG’s position as a leading specialist for high-quality aluminum surfaces and supports the company’s sustainability goals.

The 115-meter-long plant was built on a greenfield site. ANDRITZ’s equipment, especially the highly efficient spray pickling system, enables AMAG to perform high-quality surface treatment of a wide range of hot-rolled and cold-rolled aluminum strips up to five millimeters thick.

Electric heating of the process with green energy and integration of a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant contribute to environmentally friendly production. Advanced digital solutions and modern data analysis methods are used to increase the quality and productivity in surface treatment. An autonomous coil transport system, also electrically powered, enhances the efficiency of the entire production process.

“Realizing this project together with ANDRITZ has been a very good decision,” says Florian Stadler, Managing Director of AMAG rolling GmbH. “The collaboration between our teams has again been excellent as in previous projects, resulting in the timely completion of commissioning. With this new line we can further enhance the quality of our products and at the same time take another step towards decarbonization.”
