Gerdau Manitoba Steel Mill, a Canadian manufacturer of long steel products based in Selkirk, Manitoba, has chosen a Herkules machine for the third time with the purchase of a lathe, type P 400 x 4,000 CNC, for the roll shop in its wire rod and bar mill. The reliability and solid quality of the products, as well as the outstanding service provided by our North American subsidiary, have persuaded the customer to equip its roll shop exclusively with the top German products of Maschinenfabrik Herkules.
The lathes of the P-series are used to machine medium to heavy profile rolls as well as medium-sized workpieces such as forged shafts and rotors. Robust quality, high torques at the headstock and maximum concentricity are combined here with a unique machine concept that, thanks to its numerous equipment options, enables machining solutions tailored to the customer’s requirements to be achieved. Whether with additional attachments for milling, grinding or boring – a P-series lathe is always designed for the exact machining task at hand to ensure the optimum in precision, productivity and efficiency.
The Herkules Roll Shop is an integral part of the Canadian rolling mill and thus essential for Gerdau Manitoba in order to produce top quality products.
