ARCELOR - Cockerill Sambre

ARCELOR - Cockerill Sambre

Vacuum Line ARCEO

Amos was responsible for the conception and manufacturing of a complete line of sheet steel coating in a vacuum process. The deposit is continuously performed. The line is constituted by a set of vacuum vessels placed in series and realizing the following functions:

  • Continuous entrance of the sheet steel (lock chamber)
  • Etching of the sheet steel.
  • Application of a first deposit (Coating).
  • Cooling of the sheet steel (Cooling).
  • Application of the second deposit (Coating).
  • Continuous exit of the sheet steel (lock chamber)

Chamber ARCELOR - Cockerill Sambre
AMOS has manufactured for ARCELOR - Cockerill Sambre a vacuum tank of large dimensions (8m x 5m x 5m and 120 tons) working at 10-6 mbar, central element of a pilot line for deposition on steel sheets.

Airlock ARCELOR - Cockerill Sambre
Amos manufactured four vacuum vessels used for the entrance and exit lock chamber of the ARCEO (Arcelor) line for vacuum deposit. A steel band from 600 to 1400 mm wide and from 0,15 to 1,5 mm thick can go continuously from the atmospheric pressure to 1 10-6 mbar. The scrolling speed can vary from 0 to 30m/minute.


 ON FOCUS - Diamond Turning

Advanced Mechanical and Optical Systems (AMOS) manufactures small optical pieces by diamond turning mainly for infrared applications but also, after post polishing, for visible or ultraviolet. Concave or convex mirrors up to 500mm can be machined with extreme asphericities....
