After seven years of operation Danieli carried out upgrades to the two thin-slab casters supplied in 2012 at TISCO in Tangshan, China.
MM-EMB® for consistent high-speed, high-throughput production
TISCO ordered Danieli Rotelec mould electromagnetic brake technology (MM-EMB®) to produce defect-free thin slabs at high speeds and throughput. This technology not only produces a global braking function but also can flexibly address the specific flow problems of thin-slab casters. It uses five electromagnets to produce a static permanent magnetic field across the mould, to generate stabilizing and damping functions, in addition to standard braking.
In the first quarter of this year the first heat with the MM-EMB® was carried out and only five days later a casting speed of 6.0 m/min on a MC steel grade was achieved, with excellent hot-rolled coil quality results.
Abinsk Electro Metallurgical Works chose Sund Birsta technology and KNDelta binding machine with double wirefeeding for its mill in Abinsk, Russia.
The Danieli C-Stock Consignment Stock System represents a unique opportunity for metals producers to select Danieli as preferred provider for the supply of high-turnover items, including high-wear parts.
The state-of-the-art finishing equipment for two wirerod rolling mills was successfully started up, including a 10-pass fast-finishing block characterized by easy ring changing, extreme rigidity, minimum vibrations, high-speed design and high-rolling quality.
Tokyo Steel, the largest steel scrap consumer in Japan, purchases various types of scrap to feed its electric-arc furnace melting process.
Gerdau contracted Danieli to upgrade its rolling mill #3 in Pindamonhangaba, São Paulo, in order to be able to produce spring steel flat bars. The mill, producing specialty steel round bars, has recently been supplied by Danieli.
Danieli has been awarded a contract by PAO Severstal for the upgrade of plate mill 2800 at Cherepovets (Russia), in order to improve plate surface quality and increase production volume.
