One EPS Line for Coil or Sheet
The newest EPS pickling line to enter operation features some notable firsts:
- First EPS line in western Europe, and
- First EPS line that can produce both coils and sheets.
Our previous update introduced the EPS Generation 3 Cell which increases EPS speeds by over 20%, lowers operating cost proportionately, and greatly simplifies and reduces maintenance . . .
A year ago we announced plans to host a new state-of-the-art EPS Coil Line at our processing center in Red Bud, Illinois. This ‘combination’ working production line and demonstration/training line, which is currently . . .
The Material Works, Ltd. (TMW) has been named the winner of American Metal Market’s 2016 Award for Steel Excellence in the category Best Process Innovation. This prestigious award recognizes the . . .
TYASA has ordered a two-cell EPS Coil Line to complete what is arguably the most advanced, environmentally-friendly minimill facility in the world. The EPS line, which will employ the latest . . .
TMW will soon begin installing an advanced 10mm (0.375”) tension leveled EPS Coil Line at our toll processing center in Red Bud, Illinois. The line will be capable of pickling CQ, Higher Strength . . .
Today, we describe innovations that extend the service life of EPS Cell components and reduce the frequency (and cost) of maintenance . . .
EPS Cell Configuration version 5.2 has been developed to serve the growing need for large, clean plate. It utilizes EPS Slurry Blast technology, in a configuration different from other EPS Cell designs . . .
For processors who consistently specialize in more narrow strip products, the Version 2 cell configuration may be too much. That’s why we have developed EPS Cell Version 3 for narrow strip . . .
In the nearly 6 months since Lee Steel Corporation started processing coils on its 2-Cell EPS Coil line, this leading flat-rolled steel service center has gained substantial experience . . .
Continued development and testing of EPS technology has produced new features that (1) increase production speeds, (2) yield an even cleaner surface, and (3) reduce scheduled maintenance . . .
The Material Works, Ltd. (TMW) and SMS Siemag AG (SMS) have entered into an agreement whereby SMS may offer, design, build and install processing lines incorporating Eco Pickled Surface (EPS) Cells for . . .
With quite a few EPS lines now operating around the world, a substantial amount of EPS product is produced every day. Key operating parameters are being logged for each EPS Cell, then reviewed and analyzed by . . .
