By on

Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Specialty Metals has unveiled a new 20-high rolling mill at its Wallingford, Conn., facility. Ulbrich cold-rolls precision strip and foil of more than 160 alloys of stainless steel and specialty metals at the location.

The installation of this new rolling mill is in line with Ulbrich’s customer-focused development partnership strategy and our continuous improvement initiatives, the company claims.

“The new mill has state-of-the-art capabilities which further enhance the quality of our steel in all of the critical markets we serve. With this additional capacity, Ulbrich can now provide an even higher level of service which enables us to support greater new product development business for the future,” a release from the company said.

The new rolling mill can handle a wide range of thicknesses with a technically advanced automatic gauge control and shape-control system to closely monitor real time variations of thickness and flatness throughout the length of each coil that is rolled.  Ulbrich claims a resource like this will greatly improve its ability to give its customers the highest quality and most precise engineered strip.
