Aleris Rolled Products Germany increases its homogenizing capacity.

In the first quarter of 2020, Aleris Rolled Products Germany (Koblenz, Germany) placed an order with Austrian furnace supplier EBNER Industrieofenbau for the delivery, turnkey installation and commissioning of an additional HICON batch-type furnace to homogenize cast aluminum slab. The furnace accepts charges of up to 180 t.

Also included in the scope of supply and services is a charger for loading and unloading the furnace facility. This charger will also be employed to charge all of the already-existing furnaces.

Primary advantages provided by the additional equipment include:

  • An additional increase in facility availability
  • Increased speeds when exchanging charges / reduction of facility downtime, leading to increased throughput

The facility will start production around the end of 2021.

Aleris Rolled Products Germany, based in Koblenz, has been a customer of EBNER Industrieofenbau for 40 years. Aleris primarily manufactures products for the aerospace industry, but their products also find applications in the automotive and other industrial sectors.
