Manufacturing Process Of AL6XN Sheets

Reheating Furnace

Reheating furnaces are used in hot rolling mills to heat the steel stock to the rolling temperatures.

Scale Breaker

Slab moves first through a scale breaker, which is a two-high rolling mill with vertical rolls that loosens the furnace scale and removes it with high-pressure water jets.

Finish Rolling

The last stage of the rolling process is cold rolling,


Cooling or Quenching is a process of cooling a metal at a rapid rate.

Skin Pass Mill

This produces high-gloss surfaces and achieves the desired mechanical strip properties such as deep-drawing strength.

Marking & Packing

Proper packaging and labeling not only makes the final product look attractive but also save a huge amount of money by saving the product from wrong handling.
