CCR LEAD Rod Lines
Since the very beginning, in the late 1940s, when Continuus-Properzi began experimenting with lead and lead alloys to transform them through continuous casting and rolling into wire and very narrow strip, we have accumulated a tremendous amount of experience.
This amount of experience helped us during the 1980s when Properzi collaborated with the Fiat group, specifically Magneti Marelli, to build the first expanded lead metal strip line for the production of automotive battery grids.
Grid production in the market is moving towards the utilization of punched grids requiring a wider lead strip, approximately 320 mm wide.
We have further developed and optimized the Casting and Rolling of wide lead strip (CRSw).
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF CRS CASTING AND ROLLING LINES
|High reliability equipment resulting in numerous cases of OEE values of 92% or even higher
|Casting Machine cooling system designed to operate with water from a cooling tower (max. 35°C); there is no need for a chiller as strictly required by other systems
|Coiling section automatically changes collection of the strip from one mandrel to the other. Coiler can be configured to wok fully automatic mode for discharging of the lead coils and/or spools
|Dross free Casting Machine: it has been designed to reduces the amount of dross and easily eliminate it from the liquid to avoid any contamination after solidification
|High flexibility of the Rolling Train
|User friendly equipment fully adjustable
