Update: The integrated solution
EMG eMASS®/ DUMA-BANDZINK JETPRO®
We have already reported on the so-called "integrated solution" in detail in previous articles (An ideal symbiosis: EMG eMASS® strip stabilisation and the DUMA-BANDZINK nozzle as an integrated system). This solution is only available in combination with the DUMA-BANDZINK air knife technology JetPro® and is used especially in high-end automotive lines for new investments or complex retrofitting of the complete coating arrangement. The integrated solution rounds off the portfolio (article from NL Q2/17) of the available EMG eMASS® system categories and is characterised by a particularly small distance between the electromagnets and the air knife nozzle level (approx. 900 mm). In addition, this system category has the special feature of individually movable magnetic actuators, which enables an even better coverage over the strip surface for all widths and lateral strip positions.
For more information on the industrial application of the integrated solution, please refer to the article "EMG eMASS® and DUMA- BANDZINK: the first integrated solution for strip stabilisation successfully commissioned at voestalpine STAHL GmbH".
With the "integrated solution", the complete integration of an electromagnetic strip stabilisation into an air knife design has been achieved for the first time worldwide. The system is now successfully and profitably used not only on the hot-dip galvanising line #2 at voestalpine STAHL but also on the hot-dip galvanising line #7 at thyssenkrupp Steel. In addition, another system for CGL #3 is currently under construction at SSAB in Hämeenlinna, Finland. We will keep the readers of our newsletter up to date on further developments.
