Shandong Nanshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. orders two complete high-performance thermal processing lines and forging furnaces from CMI

Shandong Nanshan

CMI Industry Metals will supply 16 heating and heat treatment furnaces to Shandong Nanshan Aluminium Co., Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of the Nanshan Group, for their high-quality thermal processing related to superalloys in Nanshan’s “Aviation Materials Park” under construction.

Nanshan Group, a large scale private joint-stock enterprise, comprising over 40 companies and listed in the Top 500 Enterprises of China, is investing into the construction of an integrated alloy plant in Nanshan, China.

The CMI full-range supply will be featuring rotary furnaces, box furnaces, car bottom furnaces, ventilated box heat treatment furnaces, and the associated line equipment like quenching, manipulators for material handling and charging cars, as well as the comprehensive range of services comprising planning, design, manufacture, assembly, commissioning and training. The supply will be a combination of both gas and electrical furnaces.

The applied CMI process technologies are based on a sound track record of successfully running references for several major bluechip companies supplying high end industrial sectors. The project completion is set for the end of 2015.

An optimized equipment design using numerical simulations and dedicated mathematical models, as well as easy operator interfaces, secure systems management programmes, and precise process control to reach optimum heat curves and temperature uniformity, are major elements of the CMI solution.
