Upgrading automation and control system for Acindar’s Fenicsa site in Argentina

AIC has been selected by Acindar, Arcelor Mittal Group, for an improvement on the evacuation and cold shears area of its rolling mill Fenicsa in Argentina.
The modernization project will lead to a rethinking of the whole layout.

The material evacuation process will be enhanced by replacing the current shears with Birdsboro solutions, putting on magnetic rollers, encoders, new barriers, widening the existing cooling bed exit and adding eight variable frequency drives on the roller tables.
The new configuration is also intended to establish the control logic that goes from the oscillating arms to the packaging area included, using the existing ABB AC800 PLC with an updated software version through an improved failover handling.

The new solution will increase the reliability and flexibility of the entire area.
We are proud to continue together on this path of continuous renovation-innovation.
