Italian engineering firm Danieli has installed a new tandem cold-strip mill for Turkish steelmaker Tatmetal Çelik (Tatmetal). The five-stand mill will produce 1.08mn mt of cold-rolled strips per year.
Danieli has set up Tatmetal’s new mill in the latter’s existing continuous pickling line at the Eregly facility in Turkey, it noted in a statement on Thursday. The mill stands are equipped with a separating force of 22,000 kN (kilo Newtons) and will roll out 0.2-3mm thick strips, up to 1550-mm wide. The technology has a 45pc faster response time ensuring more control over the thickness of strips.
