The plant represents an integrated, continuously operated, fully automated concept starting with the handling of scrap and ending with cut to length homogenized extrusion billets (logs).

The CRP is particularly suited for extruders who remelt their own turn-around scrap as well as scrap from the market into extrusion billet (logs).

Compact Type Remelt Plant for long profile scrap & VDC casting

The melting furnace meets the requirements of many extruders for remelting of clean profile scrap up to 7 m long at melt rates of approx. 3 tons per hour. To meet the demand for frequent alloy and log diameter change a tiltable casting furnace with VDC casting plant is integrated.
