Automazioni Industriali Capitanio received FAC for the modernization of the rolling mill at Acciaierie Venete in Odolo, Italy

After 15 years of collaboration and the renovation projects carried out at the plants in Dolcè (VR), Mura (BS), Sarezzo (BS) and also in Odolo (BS), formerly owned by Leali Steel and recently acquired, the contract with AIC aims to update the state-of-the-art of the automation system for long product rolling mill. The bar mill in Odolo was established in the second half of the 1990s. The main activity was the production of merchant bars: flat, square, round. After the period of financial difficulties, the rolling mill was renovated and returned to full production thanks to the intervention of Acciaierie Venete.

AIC covered the entire supply of the basic and detailed engineering, the replacement of the existing equipment, Level 1 and 2 software development, cold tests, hot tests and production assistance. Representing more than 40 years of experience in the world of rolling mills for long products, AIC installed the Rolling mill Automation & Control System (RACS) to improve the efficiency of the plant and the reliability of the equipment, reduce downtime and increase the efficiency of analysis and problem-solving systems. The production performance was increased thanks to algorithm optimization, tension control, a continuity check, greater configuration flexibility of operations and the increased speed of the finish line.
