In August 2020, the final contracts between extrutec and our new customer Asen were signed. Asen Metal had opted for a gas-heated 10" billet heating system followed by a hot log saw. Due to the forward thinking of the customer, the line was already prepared for a later retrofit of an induction furnace (inline arrangement - patented worldwide).
In Addition, a new high-performance profile cooling system was ordered and implemented simultaneously with the installation of the billet furnace.
With both investments, Asen is well positioned for future automotive products and can thus further expand its product portfolio.
From the very beginning, the cooperation between the customer and other suppliers was characterized by great respect and professionalism.
The complete plant went into multi-shift production on schedule in the fall of 2021.
