Since the very beginning of its foundation, ATS’ core business has been the supply of rolling mills for the production of long product bars and wire rod lines.
In these 20 years of operation, ATS build up a long experience in:

  • Revamping and refurbishing of exiting rolling mills for production of deformed bars, SBQ bars, sections and wire rods
  • Supply of overhauled second hand equipment. All the equipment is cleaned and refurbished in our workshops in order for us to be able to guarantee their operation as a new equipment
  • Supply of tailor made single machines to be fitted in existing production lines to enhance their productivity or to reduce the operation cost. In particular ATS has a long reference list in the supply of Start/Stop shears, tying machines, fully automatic packaging areas.
  • Supply completely new rolling mills with a production capacity from 80,000 tpy up to 500,000 tpy.
ATS developed a new generation of rolling mills for the production of deformed bars. These rolling plants are focused to serve their local market and ATS design assures not only a low investment cost in the technological equipment but also in the buildings and auxiliary services.

A) Ultra Flexible rolling mill for bars, small sections and wire rod
ATS developed a new rolling mill dedicated to serve the complete range of steel products for the local market therefore they have a calibrated yearly production from 80,000 tpy up to 300,000 tpy of:
  • Deformed bars:   8 - 32 mm
  • Round bars:        16 - 35 mm
  • Wire rod:             5.5 - 16 mm
  • Flats:                   30x3 - 50x8 mm
  • Angles:                25x3 - 60x6 mm
  • Channels:            30x15 - 60x30 mm

Main characteristics are:
  • Optimized layout and technological solutions to guarantee a constant productivity of high quality products
  • Reduced investment cost in equipment, auxiliary services and buildings
  • Low production cost for an immediate return of investment

B) High speed bar delivery in cooling bedUltra Flexible rolling mill for bars, small sections and wire rod
In case of higher production lines, ATS’ high speed discharging system in cooling bed is adopted. This system includes: Fast finishing block, high speed shear, bar breakers at the entry side of cooling bed and drum type breaking and discharging machine.

C) Mini Profile Mill
Mini Profile Mill technology has been developed for the production of a wide range of special sections starting from rolled wire rod coil.

The process flow includes:
  • Uncoiling station equipped with wire welding machine
  • Multi-roll wire straightener for the smooth feeding of the downstream induction furnace
  • Induction furnace to heat-up the material up to the rolling temperature of 750-850°C
  • Micro housing-less stands for the final shaping of the product. They are equipped with carbide rolls for an easy management of the production schedule.
  • Cut to final length shear
  • Cooling bed for product cooling down to room temperature
  • Bundling system
The feeding wire rod can range from 5.5 mm dia up to 20 mm dia. according to the final product.

By means of this technology, it is possible to produce:
  • Deformed round bars and plain round bars
  • Squares, hexagons, triangle and flat bars
  • Angles, channels, T bar, Y bar
  • Special section bars according to the design of the final user

Yearly total productivity can range from 10,000 up to 20,000 tpy, according to the production mix.



Successfully commissioned new Tying System for Sulb Company BSC Closed Heavy sections mill in Bahrein

New tying system for heavy sections has been commissioned in SULB Company BSC Closed heavy sections mill in Kingdom of Bahrein, it consist in a tying machine operated by wire installed next to the existing strapping machine to increase safety in material handling for transportation by ship.

The TMP 1100 tying machine is able to tie square stacks up to 1100 x 1100 mm, it has been supplied complete with automation, motorized loop recover system for the re – insertion of the wire into the coil basket to avoid dangerous loops during wire trailing around the stack and portable control pluggable switchboard for local manual operations.

Installation and commissioning of the machine has been executed in less than one week under supervision of one ATS specialist.

Together with ATS Customer Oriented Service, the aim of the Customer was to install a “turn on and forget” tailor made system that was fitting with the advantages of ATS tying machines:

  • Fast and reliable tying cycle
  • Full automatic operation integrated in the existing system
  • Standardized units and components with almost no-maintenance cost
  • Compact design for easy and fast installation in existing layouts
