by David Fleschen
Changshu Longteng Special Steel, China, reconfirmed its confidence in Danieli rolling technology with an order for a 400,000-tpy, continuous mill for flat bar products. A new Danieli SBQ mill and wirerod line recently started-up at the same site.
The new mill will consist of 11 stands arranged in H/V configuration, as well as a downstream process that will include a transfer bed and equipment for collecting spooled flat products from the customer's coiling machines.
The new mill will replace a three-high mill, increasing annual production capacity and product quality.
Finished products will be 70- to 130-mm thick flats for end plates, at rates up to 75 tph.
The new plant is scheduled to start production at the beginning of 2021.
