TSM 2 Rolling Mill Project 2015
Bridgnorth Aluminium Ltd has recently invested in expanding its lithographic strip rolling and finishing capacities, installing new machinery (e.g. a new cold-rolling mill). As part of this project, The Systems Group carried out extensive installations for Bridgnorth Aluminium Ltd. This included stainless steel rolling oil, lubrication oil and cooling water pipework services, and installation of high pressure cold-drawn seamless hydraulic tube and pneumatic pipework.
The Systems Group worked closely with the project team at Bridgnorth Aluminium Ltd and the machinery manufacturer to ensure installation progressed through to commissioning with minimum disruption. The project was successfully completed in March 2016 to full client satisfaction.
