Drive Systems for the Metal Industry - Enhancing finish quality, plant productivity and yield

The manufacture of consistently high quality finished metals is a must in today’s competitive market. Obtaining this finish demands precision and repeatability in terms of performance, control and long term reliability from machinery. Manufacturers are continually striving to develop and upgrade plant equipment to meet production targets and the quality levels demanded by the market.

Control Techniques drive systems meet the requirements, improving the process control to enhance the finish quality, plant productivity and yield. Systems are engineered and supported globally through our Drive Centre network. Our engineers located around the world have the necessary in-depth process and application knowledge of metals manufacturing.

Control Techniques experience covers Continuous Casters, Hot & Cold Rolling Mills, Skin Pass Mills, Pickle Lines, Annealing Lines, Coating Lines, Tension Leveling Lines, Heavy & Light gauge Foil Rolling Mills (Rougher, Intermediate, Finishing) through to Cut-To-Length Lines and Slitter/Separator Machines.

Our energy efficient motor and drive systems can be applied to partial upgrades, site retrofits or complete turnkey automated systems.
