About the Project

At the beginning of 2018 pa-innovations GmbH received the order for the delivery of the automation for the conversion of the TRIO mill stand to a DUO mill stand at voestalpine Böhler Bleche GmbH & CO KG in Hönigsberg, Austria.

The delivery from pa-innovations GmbH included:

  • Function description including control desk design and operating philosophy,
  • Level 2 system and complete 3-D visualization system,
  • Entire Level 1 software,
  • Commissioning and optimization,
  • Training of maintenance engineers and operating personnel.

A key argument for the decision in favor of automation technology from pa-innovations was the good experience with the delivery of automation solutions for

  • the modernization of the DUO2 rolling mill in the year 2013 (level 1 and level 2 systems) and
  • the rolling mill for high-speed steel in the year 2016.

voestalpine Böhler Bleche appreciates ​​the high level of competence of the specialists of pa-innovations GmbH.
Like many other similar projects, the project was carried out together with BUMA Engineering and Plant Construction as a mechanical partner. Only due to the well proven team of these two companies as well as Kremsmüller as electrical partner, this project could be carried out within a short time of 6 months from awarding to commissioning and optimization.
