WAI - INTERNATIONAL TECHNICAL CONFERENCE 2016
Each year the Wire Association International hosts an educational conference designed to unite industry experts from around the world to share their latest innovations within the wire and cable industry with their peers and colleagues. This year the WAI International Technical Conference will be held in Monterrey, Mexico on October 17-20, 2016.
Experts from the wire and cable industry will give technical and operational presentations throughout the conference on topics from their respective segments of the industry. Giuseppe Marcantoni, General Manager of Properzi International, Inc., the US subsidiary of Continuus-Properzi, S.p.A., will be presenting "Properzi Technology and Equipment". The presentation will provide a brief history of the Properzi Continuous Casting and Rolling (CCR) technology, highlight Properzi's developments in copper and aluminium CCR technology and equipment, and explore new technology areas including Pro-Form continuous rotary extrusion equipment, the utilization of the Properzi Microrolling® mill to produce self-annealing wire thereby providing savings in the rod breakdown operation, and off-line FRHC ingot casting to provide copper ingots that can be blended with cathodes during rod production.
We look forward to seeing you in Monterrey!
WIRE CHINA & WIRE INDIA 2016
Autumn is a demanding season for Continuus Properzi staff. Our company was engaged in two important exhibitions both devoted to the wire & cable field.
- The 7th China International Wire & Cable Industry Trade Fair (Wire China 2016) which took place at Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) from September 26 - September 27, 2016. Mr. Vladimir Djukic and Mr. Alberto Ghisetti, our sales managers welcomed you to our booth in the ICE collective area.
The 6th International Exhibition & Conference for the Wire and Cable Industry (Wire & Cable India 2016) which held at Mumbai, Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre Goregaon (East) from October 5 - October 72016, where you met Mr. Carmelo Maria Brocato - Vice President and Commercial Director and Mr. Michelangelo Nidasio - Senior Process Engineer and Sales Advisor.
In both events we introduced you to our new technologies:
- Continuous Extrusion Line (Properzi Forming) – we are capable of supplying all the main equipment necessary for the production of ACSR/AW including the CCR Line for producing AL rod, the Drawing Machine for High carbon steel, the Pro-Form, the Drawing Machine for ACSR wire and finally the Stranding Machinery.
- Self-annealed CU wire Microrolling® mill - This rolling mill has been used as breakdown machinery for processing copper rod from 8 mm down to 1.8 mm or 2 mm without annealing. The main advantage… energy savings!
As is common knowledge, our company provides a complete range of technology on Hot and Cold process machinery, please see the section dedicated to these process or if you prefer, the products section on our website.
THE 15TH EUROPEAN LEAD BATTERY CONFERENCE
The 15th European Lead Battery Conference took place from 13th to 16th September 2016 in Valletta, Malta.
This important event focused its attention on main topics which captured the attention of visitors and experts as:
- Efficiency on energy storage
Reduction of carbon emissions and majors improvements in fuel efficiency
Recyclability of lead batteries
Latest advantages in batteries R&D and new manufacturing techniques and equipment and more…
Continuus-Properzi attended the conference and was represented by our Mr. Gabriele Muscarnera, who illustrated our Lead Division capabilities and specially our “Wide grids from lead strip for punched grids”.
The tendency today is towards punched grids requiring a strip which is about 330 mm wide.
The wide strip is punched into grids having a full frame and therefore can withstand the high compression requested in the elements of AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries. The wide strip can be punched according to any design as defined by the customer and since the strip is continuously cast and rolled it provides significant savings in weight.
We have therefore developed and optimized the casting and rolling of wide lead strip. These developments include: four-wheel type in-line casting; minimum cast strip thickness; new, sturdy, independently-driven rolling stands, etc. Obviously, all other related machinery has been redesigned accordingly to accommodate the wide strip casting and rolling process.
4TH IRAN INTERNATIONAL ALUMINIUM CONFERENCE 2016
Our Minister of Foreign Mr. P. Gentiloni during the meeting we had in January with President of Iran Mr. H. Rouhani declared: We cannot say we will come back to Iran because we never abandoned Iran. This sentence is very much applicable for Continuus-Properzi during the "dark time" we had the privilege of suppling our plants to the beautiful and promising country of Iran.
Our Vice President and Commercial Director Mr. C.M. Brocato took part to the 4th Iran International Aluminium Conference 2016 (IIAC 2016) on 11th and 12th May 2016 and gave a speech: The Properzi Technology for the Production of Aluminium Rod and Aluminium Ingots.
This technical paper exposes the trends in electrical energy and automotive industry and Properzi contribute with his equipment and technology to get this growth pretty sustainable.
WIRE DÜSSELDORF 2016
Once again the International Wire and Cable Trade Fair took place at Düsseldorf – Germany, from April 4th to April 8th, 2016.
