Denieli Starts Hot Trials at Danieli Universal Endless Plant of Shougang Jingtang
Denieli, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, starts hot trials at Danieli Universal Endless plant. Hot testing has begun for the innovative Danieli Universal Endless (DUE®) plant of Shougang Jingtang United Iron & Steel Co Ltd in Caofeidian in China. For the first time ever, coil-to-coil and endless, thermo-mechanical and multi-phase, ultra-thin and thick products all will be possible in a single production line, making both value-added niche products as well as commercial-grade products. Shougang Jingtang’s DUE® plant will produce 2.1 million tonnes in a wide mix of steel grades and strip dimensions from 0.8 to 12.7 mm thickness and widths from 900 to 1,600 mm.
In mid-April the hot test of the caster area started as per schedule, and within a few days several heats of LC and MC grades had been cast. The target was achieved as per the SGJT plan, producing 110-mm thick, 1420-mm wide slabs. By the end of April, the mill also started rolling tests. This startup represents a milestone in modern flat products production.
The DUE® layout configuration, together with effective and optimized energy consumption, now represents the most extensive application of Danieli’s concept of production flexibility.
Danieli welcomes all steel industry professionals to visit its stand at Metal-Expo'2019, the 25th Jubilee International Exhibition, November 12-15, Hall 75, VDNHa, Moscow, Russia.
