In April, Frisa, located in Mexico, a leading producer of rolled rings and open die forgings, awarded INTECO with the order to supply a special steel plant.
The new plant consists of an electric arc furnace (EAF), a ladle furnace (LF), a vacuum degassing plant (VD), a material handling system, and an ingot casting (IC) area. In order to ensure the highest quality, the plant engineering will be carried out by INTECO special melting technologies GmbH, the INTECO Group headquarters. Manufacturing will be awarded to renowned business partners. In addition, key component high technologies are delivered by various members of the INTECO Group:
Process Technology Int. (PTI), will equip the EAF with burners (PTI JETburnerTM), injection systems, and sampling manipulators. Also, PTI’s swingdoor will be installed in the EAF.
Both the EAF and LF will be operated with the INTECO atec automation electrode control ISEC. ISEC is distinguished by high energy efficiency operated by simple configuration and handling.
The start of the new steel plant is scheduled for beginning of 2016.
