Welcome to Achenbach! Visitors are invited to operate a new rolling mill simulator. It consists of three screens and one control desk with various operating elements. One can select the coil to be rolled and ‘bring it into the machine’. All parameters belonging to this coil like alloy, target thickness, strip width etc. are transferred to the presetting screen. In order to secure an optimum rolling process, further technological parameters are automatically added and the coil is rolled with all functions of the OPTIROLL® system. Alternatively visitors can choose all settings manually and face up to the competition with other ‘operators’: Who rolls the best strip?

Product category: Foil rolling mills

Foil slitting machines OPTIFOIL®

Achenbach expanded its product range several years ago with the addition of foil slitting machines. Since then, OPTIFOIL® has become a globally recognized brand alongside the company's established doubling, separating, winding and slitting systems, which are synonymous with customer satisfaction. Achenbach uses its own state-of-the-art processes to manufacture all components of key importance to slitting precision and speed. This, along with complete pre-assembly and commissioning in our own workshops, ensures the top quality of Achenbach OPTIFOIL® foil slitting machines. It also supports smooth and rapid final assembly and commissioning at the customer site

  • OPTIFOIL® slitting machines for non-ferrous metals: As one of the unique features Achenbach machines follow the concept 'everything from a single source' including OPTIFOIL® doublers and separataors as well as Heavyslit and Lightslit slitting machines.
  • OPTIFOIL® slitting machines for converting materials: for the slitting of highly sensitive materials, narrow strips or large coils at maximum quality and productivity levels. These are produced on the OPTIFOIL® machine types Varioslit and Jumboslit.

Rolling mill automation OPTIROLL®

Almost all Achenbach rolling mills are automated using OPTIROLL® technology; a large number of existing mills have been modernized with OPTIROLL®. Hardware components such as flatness measuring rolls are used not only in aluminum rolling mills but also increasingly in copper, steel and stainless steel rolling mills.

The continuous development of the OPTIROLL® i3 integrated rolling mill automation system has resulted in a migration to the i3 system platform. Recent additions include high-performance interfaces and model-based functions.

We will provide you with more information on our METEC booth, which will be focused on this topic.Visitors are also invited to roll a coil automatically with our new rolling mill simulator comprising all functions of the OPTIROLL® system. Alternatively, you can choose all settings manually and face up competition with other ‘operators’: Who rolls the best strip?

Production plants

Achenbach is high-experienced in both, in building and modernizing complex production plants for non-ferrous metal rolling and slitting products. They comprise multiple production stages along the value chain for the manufacture of defined rolled and customized strips and foils.

The success of production plants' projects depends not just on a high level of technical competence but also on professional project management. It begins with the creation of an individual concept and ends with the timely and contractually compliant start of production. Achenbach's unique integrative technology approach to engineering and manufacturing ensures maximum customer satisfaction. Its high degree of flexibility allows Achenbach to quickly and selectively adapt to changes in customer needs and desires over the course of the project.

Rolling mills

Achenbach is recognized worldwide as a specialist in premium rolling mills for flat-rolled products made of aluminum, copper, zinc and their alloys. We use our own state-of-the-art processes to manufacture all components of key importance to rolling precision and speed. This, along with extensive pre-assembly in our own workshops, ensures the top quality of Achenbach rolling mills. It also supports smooth and rapid final assembly and commissioning at the customer site.

The best rolling results are achieved through Achenbach's own OPTIROLL® automation system and OPTIPURE® process engineering systems designed for economically and environmentally efficient rolling oil management during the rolling process.

  • Aluminum rolling mills: Hot strip, cold strip, thin strip and foil rolling mills are used to roll strips of light metals such as aluminum, magnesium and their alloys down to final thicknesses of 0.005 mm.
  • Copper & brass rolling mills: Hot strip, cold strip, thin strip and foil rolling mills are used to roll strips of copper, zinc and their alloys down to final thicknesses of 0.05 mm.

About us

Company details

Achenbach Buschhütten is a family-run and owned company with more than 560 years of history. The company was founded as an iron hammer in 1452 by the three Busch brothers. After being sold to the family of Engelhard Achenbach in 1846 and demolition of the iron hammer, the company turned into an iron foundry. Rolling mill building started in 1888.

Today, Achenbach is a strong brandname in the market of OPTIMILL® rolling mill machinery for non-ferrous metals and for OPTIFOIL® slitting and winding machines for non-ferrous metals and converting materials.

The Achenbach OPTIROLL® rolling mill automation ist also re-known worldwide. OPTIROLL plays an important role within many modernization projects of existing and Achenbach installations. Furthermore, hardware components such as flatness measuring rolls are used not only in aluminium rolling mills but also increasingly in copper, steel and stainless steel rolling mills.

Achenbach machinery are producing rolled and slitted products in the aluminum as well as in the copper and brass industry in more than 60 countries all over the world; the export ratio is higher than 85%.
