By rolling the first coil, SMS group has successfully put into operation the new Compact Cold Mill of Aisha Steel Mills Limited in Karachi in Pakistan. The CCM at Aisha Steel Mills is designed for an annual cold strip production capacity of 500,000 tonnes. The new facility enables Aisha Steel Mills to supply the local market with high-grade cold strip according to international standards and helps the company to make its contribution to reducing the country`s dependency on high-quality cold strip imports. The products rolled on the CCM are up to 1,250 millimeters wide and down to 0.15 millimeters thin.

The CCM features two mill stands in four-high design with the proven roll shifting technology CVC®plus (Continuously Variable Crown) by SMS group. CVC®plus is supplemented by further actuators to infinitely adjust the roll gap, for example positive and negative work roll bending. The quality-determining technical highlights of the plant include two X-Shape flatness measurement rolls, installed at the entry and exit sides, together with multi-zone cooling system and automatic flatness control.

The highly productive CCM® is equipped with the holistic X-Pact® electrical and automation system from SMS group. SMS group supplied the complete plant with all auxiliary equipment, such as modern technological instrumentation, emulsion plant, high- and low-pressure hydraulics as well as the fume exhaust system.
