First LAEIS anode press starts production
LAEIS successfully puts first anode press MEGA 1600 AV at JSC Aluminium Smelter, Kazakhstan, into operation.
In November 2014 the first, state of the art hydraulic vacuum press MEGA for the production of anodes for the aluminium industry was commissioned and handed over at the new anode plant of JSC Kazakhstan Aluminium Smelter, Pavlodar.
MEGA 1600 AV und MEGA 2500 AV are modern hydraulic high-performance presses for the production of anodes of all commonly used dimensions can be produced in optimum quality. These presses are equipped with advanced vacuum technology and enable a production capacity of up to 60 large-sized anodes per hour. A specially designed dosing and mould filling system ensures a uniform filling of the mould, which together with the modern press control results in a very homogeneous density distribution. A further advantage is the relatively low forming temperature whereby the emission of pitch fumes is significantly reduced and the use of a separate water cooling of the formed anode can be avoided.
