Two new Jumbo 3CM® continuous casters commissioned at Assan Aluminyum
After the successful installation of five continuous casters in 2008, a new contract was signed last year between Assan Aluminyum, a subsidiary of Kibar Group, and Novelis PAE, for the supply of two additional Jumbo 3CM® casters in the Dilovasi plant in Turkey. This investment is part of a major expansion of Assan Aluminyum in the foil and flexible packaging production. The casting lines were installed and commissioned in a very short 3-month period by a joint team of Assan Aluminyum and Novelis PAE.
With these two new lines, Assan Aluminyum is consolidating its leadership in aluminium strip casting with a total of 19 production lines, 12 in the Dilovasi plant and 7 in the Tuzla plant, and strengthening herewith its long term partnership with Novelis PAE as a supplier of casthouse equipment.
The two casters, commissioned in May 2017, have been designed to produce high quality aluminum strip in 1000, 3000, 8000 and 5000 alloys in width up-to 1800mm.
They benefit from several new features in order to:
improve the quality and consistency of the production,
make the casting operation and maintenance easier for the staff,
reduce the downtime
