Jiandong Alloy orders most productive CONTIROD®* copper wire rod plant for Chinese market from SMS group

High energy efficiency and high product quality

(PresseBox) (Düsseldorf, ) Jiandong Alloy Technology Co. Ltd. based in Nantong City, in the Chinese province of Jiangsu, has placed an order with SMS group ( to supply a CONTIROD®*plant of type CR 3500.

The CONTIROD®* line, designed for casting and rolling wire rod in one continuous process, will have a production capacity of 35 tons of copper wire rod per hour. The CONTIROD®* CR 3500 will mainly be used to produce ETP (Electrolytic Tough Pitch) copper wire, a semi-finished product for the manufacturing of electrical conductors.

The scope of supply will include a shaft melting furnace, a twin-belt casting machine with a large cross-sectional area of 6,510 square millimeters, a rolling mill with separate individual drives for all twelve stands, a deoxidation and cooling line as well as a wire coiling station, an automatic strapping unit and a foil packaging plant for the produced copper wire rod coils.

The applied casting and rolling technique provides very good prerequisites for the downline drawing process – especially for the production of enameled wire and fine wires in an environment of continuously growing demands on drawing speed and technological features.

With its new, energy-efficient technologies (lambda control on the shaft furnace, AC motors, deoxidation and cooling lines with separate media circuits) and high performance capability, the CONTIROD®* CR 3500 sets a new standard, qualifying for the SMS group Ecoplants label for environmentally friendly technologies.

Commissioning is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
