SPECIFICATIONS:



A COMPLETE BRASS/COPPER ROD AND BAR PLANT LOCATED IN EUROPE



This fully integrated plant includes modern scrap handling, melting, billet



casting, extrusion, drawing and finishing of brass and copper alloy rod and



bar products. The plant was in full operation until January 2011 and is



located in Norway. Nearly all machines are installed and operational.



Please note that this is for sale as a complete plant only. Individual



machines are not for sale at this time. However if you are interested in a



single machine or group of machines, let us know and we will contact you again



should they be sold individually.



The Plant produced a variety of rod and bar shapes including rounds, hexes,



squares and profiles for products used in many industries including



automotive, energy, stamping, plumbing, aerospace, and hardware.



CAPACITY:



The plant produces 30 Metric Tons per shift with the existing casting shop and



production equipment. An upgrade to the Bultmann Drawbench, which was underway



when the plant closed, would increase production to 40 tons per shift. Annual



production of finished product is between 15,000 - 17,000 metric tons. Note



that the Inductotherm Melting Furnace shown below as part of Line No. 1 has



been transferred and is not for sale, which reduces the capacity to 11,000 -



13,500 TPY. It is listed to show its specifications so that the Purchaser can



replace it with another furnace of the same capacity and reinstate annual



production of 15,000 - 17,000 TPY. The shaker table, holding furnace and



billet caster are still included in this sale.



THE FOUNDRY:



The foundry is located in a separate stand-alone building a short distance



from the production plant. The foundry produces brass and copper billets for



use in the extrusion press as well as brass and copper pig and ingot for



external sales. The foundry includes modern scrap sorting equipment,



mechanized cathode transfer equipment, dryers and silos, and a full array of



ancillary equipment of scrap preparation. The scrap preparation area is



incorporated in a floor space of 1200 square meters (13,000 sq. ft.).



Scrap and cathode is transferred automatically from the preparation area then



into the melting and casting area by means of conveyor, pneumatic blower or



forklift. The melting and casting area, which is 1936 square meters (20,736



sq. ft.) consists of three separate melting and casting lines. Each line



consists of a shaker table feed system, induction melting furnace, holding



furnace, and caster. Lines 1 & 3 are designed for casting of billets into



Knoevenagel vertical direct chill casters. Line No. 2 is designed for the



production of cast ingot and pig. Technical specifications for each of the



three lines can be seen by clicking on the link below or going to our website



at www.machyintl.com and entering stock number 11524. Note that the



Inductotherm 7000 Kg induction melting furnace is no longer available as part



of the sale and should be replaced by the purchaser in order to maintain full



casting production. All other equipment in Line 1 including shaker table,



holding furnace, and billet caster are still included in the sale.



In addition to the three casting lines, the foundry includes an emergency



diesel generator, Kaltenbach billet saw, and an ARL Model 4460 spectrometer



with an SMS Model 1000 sample manipulator which was purchased new in 1997.



The foundry also includes a Swarf drying line, pneumatic chip feed system, a



Motoman Model MX100 robot arm for slag removal and furnace wall scraping



purchased new in 2008, and a triple unit cleaning bag house system purchased



in 2004.

PRODUCTION PLANT



The production plant is located in a self-contained hall 16 meters wide x 223



meters long (53 ft. wide x 731 ft. long) for a total area of 3,568 square



meters (38,743 sq. ft.). Of course when the plant is reinstalled it can be



done in any configuration utilizing the same floor space.



The production plant utilizes the billets produced in the foundry. Billets are



heated in a Banyard induction billet furnace and extruded in a 2100 ton Kobe



indirect extrusion press, new in 1985. The press has the capability of



extruding in either straight lengths or in coil form. It utilizes a walking



beam cooling table for straight lengths and a 12-station carrousel system with



coil extraction and upending capability. The product then proceeds through a



series of cleaning, pickling, annealing, straightening, cutting and finishing



processes.
