CISDI engineer and supply new reaction blocks and latches to TATA Port Talbot Hot Rolling Mill

At 6:30 on September 8, 2016, the finishing mill bending roll and back-up roll locking devices designed and supplied by the CISDI, were successfully put into service at TATA Steel, Port Talbot in the UK.

Stands F5-F9 roll bending reaction blocks and Stands F5-F11 support roller locking latches of the finishing mill were designed and manufactured by CISDI as part of the project.

The project required the strict implementation international standards, following ITP plans for the whole design and supply cycle.

Equipment delivery was coordinated with a planned site shutdown, allowing the modification to be made without impacting production. The installation and hot test succeeded allowing production to be resumed on schedule, with a close coordination between the customer, the installer and the CISDI team.

TATA had visited the manufacturing workshops in China to witness functional and dynamic testing of the equipment, the manufacturing process, quality control and schedule management, and were very satisfied.

Ultimately, the project equipment design, manufacture, quality control and painting met international standards, with the customer fully satisfied.
