The first ring-rolling mill designed and built by Siempelkamp has passed all necessary tests at its initial startup at the Krefeld plant in Germany. Siempelkamp has manufactured the first rings made on the rolling mill which will be delivered to the Russian JSC Metallurgical Plant Electrostal shortly.

The ring rolling mill, with maximum radial and axial pressing forces of 6300kN each, enables the precise manufacturing of rings with an external diameter of up to 2500mm and a height of up to 600mm.

This ring-rolling mill is the second plant which Siempelkamp has supplied to the JSC Metallurgical Plant Electrostal. The company also operates a 20kt precision closed-die forging press made by Siempelkamp which provides some of the feedstock for the ring rolling mill.
