Our areas of application
in the metal industry

  • walzwerke-neu

    Rolling mills

    Rolling mills turn coarse slabs, blocks and billets into fine strips, sheets, bars and forgings. Our drive and control technology takes care of the fine tuning – be it for cold and hot rolling stands in steel production, Sendzimir and skin-pass mills in stainless steel processing or rolling mills in the aluminum industry. With our technological controls, you can match profile, thickness, setting, bending and roll displacement precisely to your production parameters. Only one factor is consistent: our demand for the highest dimensional accuracy, efficiency and freedom from errors.

  • bandbehandlungsanlagen

    Strip processing lines

    In strip processing, strips made of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum are refined and further processed. The processes include pickling, annealing and straightening, trimming and cutting the strips. There are many production routes between the starting material and the end product, each of which is precisely matched to the material properties. LUX Automation analyzes your requirements continuously and finds the best and most efficient automation solution for you.

  • maschinensteuerung

    Machine control

    Any machine is only as good as the engineer who invents it, the technician who builds it, and the clever person who controls it. LUX Automation will gladly take care of the latter for you. Thanks to our long-standing experience, we are particularly familiar with machines in the metal industry. Water, extrusion and tube presses, free-form forging presses, manipulators, straightening machines and stretching benches: we optimize the machine control for your production.
