Technology
in top form

Maximum accuracy in technical production is the basis on which we ensure that the rolls and specialist components operate absolutely perfectly. For this reason, COSWIG invests continuously in the qualification of its employees and in modernising its machine park.

With CNC machining centres, Herkules lathes and laser measuring systems we have set the benchmark in terms of the accuracy and machining quality of our cast products. As a result, we can offer our customers a guarantee that the predicted performance potential will indeed be achieved in reality. Production takes place on two independent production lines with an annual capacity of 40,000 tonnes. This makes COSWIG particularly flexible and well enough equipped to meet any challenge.

Perfect precision

The efficiency of any production line can be improved with rolls from COSWIG. Here, the key to success lies in the profile rolls and upset forging rolls, as well as in the rolling rings and plungers, which are carefully coordinated by our engineers to the production processes of our customers. For maximum roll performance, long service life and minimised costs.
