AIC successfully completed the rolling mill modernization at Acciaierie di Sicilia (Alfa Acciai Group) in Catania (CT), Italy

The new project includes the installation of 6 new roughing stands (supplied by Danieli) and the renovation of the rolling mill automation system.

The control system of the rolling mill was also replaced: from the legacy system with the control boards to a state-of-the-art system based on Rockwell’s PLC and HMI and integrated control platform AIC RACS (Rolling Mill Automation Control System). This allowed to install all the advanced features of AIC’s RACS system, such as: process control of the rolling mill (tension and loop regulation, material tracking); control of two intermediate shears; etc.
Moreover, Gennaro Brigliadoro (Production Manager of Acciaierie di Sicilia) mentioned that the team of AIC is “professional, well trained, quickly responds to incoming requests and has 360° competences”.
The production has started at full capacity since the first week.
