MFL, Division Sawing and Milling Technology, offers a machine that uses milling rather than conventional machining techniques such as grinding or flame descaling to machine steel slabs. The condition of the slab remains 1-to-1 unchanged.
The process introduces no heat into the slab and produces no residue, and there are no metallurgical variations, such as surface decarburization or transformation of the microstructure. Defects or cracks in the slab are visible immediately and can be corrected by means of the teach-in function.
The machine can handle slabs up to 39.37 ft. long and up to 13.12 ft. wide. With double-gantry milling, two milling heads machine the slabs all over and automatically. Angle heads for lateral machining are optional. Chips are removed automatically and sorted homogenously.
