MLP Steel of Scottdale, Pa., installed a new state-of-the-art rolling mill to add to its capabilities of rolling special shapes and profiles. The mill is designed to produce flat wire, special shapes and profiles to exacting tolerances in sizes ranging from 0.30 to .375 inches in thickness to .187 to 1.0 inches in width. The profile geometry and control parameters are monitored throughout the coil by an in-line laser measuring system, which ensures dimensional accuracy and uniformity throughout the coil.

Manufacturing of the mill was a joint effort by MLP Steel, Herr-Voss Stamco and Premier Automation. MLP Steel contributed engineering, machining and fabrication.
