Lech-Stahlwerke GmbH


GEVA automation started providing the Max Aicher Group with its services as far back as in 1992 with its involvement in Pusher Furnaces for Lech-Stahlwerke in Meitingen, Germany. The automation and drive system was then upgraded in the late 90´s, after which the approach was made to assist Lech-Stahlwerke in installing a complete finishing end automation system including automation, drives and switchgear for the continuous finishing line of rolling mill #2 (quality production, thick products) – from cooling bed, material administration to control units and stack system.

Thanks to its ongoing untarnished reputation, GEVA automation was brought on board to provide its services to the Lech-Stahlwerke affiliate, Annahütte / Germany, in connection with the supply of an automation system and drives relating to a new charging table supplied by BUMA Engineering.


  • Pusher Furnace in Rolling Mill #1 with automation & drives and Level 2
  • Lech-Stahlwerke acknowledged GEVA´s second-to-none flexibility of support without annoying claims
  • Given the experience and trust that this served to generate, Lech-Stahlwerke and GEVA automation went on to collaborate in the new finishing end project: their very own joint development project, based on a concept geared towards enhancing material flow and brought to fruition in phased projects to which GEVA contributed its expertise and excellence in the area of process automation.
