Morgan Construction Company : 13 July, 2005  (New Product)
Morgan Construction Company has received an order from the Corus Group for an upgrade to the company's four-strand mill in Scunthorpe, United Kingdom
Morgan Construction Company has received an order from the Corus Group for an upgrade to the company's four-strand mill in Scunthorpe, United Kingdom.

According to Steve Lidgate, Managing Director of Morgan-Europe, the company's subsidiary in Sheffield, England, 'As part of the contract, Corus ordered four high-speed trimming and chopping shears, water boxes and associated equipment that will be installed in the company's existing Morgan wire rod mill.' He continued, 'The new automated equipment will significantly improve the health and safety of Corus' operators by removing the hazards associated with manual end trimming. The shears will also provide improvements in process consistency that allow increased customer satisfaction, improved yield, and reduced operating costs.' Lidgate said that the mill produces quality steel grades, including tyre cord, spring steels, low alloy steels, and lead-free cutting steels, from 5.0 mm to 13.5 mm in size, at 70 meters per second at a rate of 1,000,000 tonnes annually. He added that the first two shears will be installed this summer, with the remaining two to be installed in November of this year.
Morgan is a designer and producer of high-quality rolling mill products and services for the mal industry worldwide.
