Seeking to improve wire rod quality and mill utilization, Vina Kyoei has contracted with Primetals Technologies to upgrade the pinch roll and laying head in its wire rod mill in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, Vietnam. The addition of SR Series pipe will extend the laying head pipe life and improve the laying pattern. An electrical and automation package also supplied will integrate the new equipment. Commissioning is expected by early next year.
The scope of supply for this first direct contract with a Vietnamese wire rod producer includes a Morgan Intelligent Pinch Roll and Morgan High Speed Laying Head with SR Series pipe, plus motors, drives and automation to interface with the existing control system. The new equipment has a design speed of 120 m/s.
