Complete Inspection and conditioning plant at Duferco Belgium
By means of more than twelve years of experience in this field, ATS developed a new generation of grinding machines for the surface conditioning of slabs, ingots, blooms, billets, bars and hollow material.

ATS grinders can be applied for the surface reconditioning of any kind of material: engineering steel, stainless steel, titanium, super-alloys (Ni ad Cr), non-Fe metals.

ATS product scope includes all the sizes of grinding machines to cover the complete product range requested from the market: from the smallest grinding machine for bar conditioning equipped with 60 kW motor, to the grinding machine for hot carbon steel slabs equipped with 630 kW motor.

The main characteristics of our machines are the following:
  • High productivity with maximization of the yield of the line. Grinding with automatic pressure control system avoids any over-grinding of the product either for not-straight product and at product ends
  • Smooth operation in any environmental condition: ATS grinding system can grind cold, warm and hot (900 °C) products, in 90° and 45° wheel configuration.
  • Sturdy and heavy machine structures to avoid any system vibration and therefore increase the grinding wheel life.
  • Improved design solutions to either avoid or reduce the maintenance and spare parts cost

Grinding machines can be completed by all the auxiliary handling equipment and quality control systems in order to form a complete Inspection and conditioning line for slabs or blooms.

Automation system supervise the complete line assuring a high productivity, safe operation and quality certification of final product.

In addition to the standard equipment, ATS has developed also machines dedicated to special utilization:
  • Slab head grinding
  • Belt type grinders for steel heavy plates
