SDI chooses Danieli technology for product expansion
August 17, 2017
Danieli has been awarded a contract by the US steel producer Steel Dynamics Inc. to supply a new billet welder and spooler line, which will be installed at its Columbia City, Indiana facility. The new equipment will be capable of processing 240,000 tpy of rebar from #3 to #8 and smooth rounds from 3/8” to 1-1/16” in compact coils up to 5.5 tonnes. This will be the 27th Danieli spooler line (58 units in all) designed and installed since 2000.
The combination of billet welding and spooling technologies will maximize yield because of the endless production process. Twist-free spooled coils add value to final products as they do not require uncoiling and recoiling operations before downstream processing.
Commissioning of the new line is expected in the last quarter of 2018.
