Portuguese Rolling Mill Slates Major Upgrade for 2020

4/11/2019 - Long products producer Megasa Group has announced a major modernization project at its SN Seixal rolling mill in Portugal, according to the supplier on the project.

Danieli will be supplying and installing the equipment for the upgrade. SN Seixal will receive 11 new housingless intermediate and finishing stands and Danieli’s K-Welding billet welder that allows for continuous rolling.

The electric-resistance welding machine will continuously feed square billet into the rolling mill at approximately 210 metric tons/hour.

The project will commence during the plant’s planned shutdown in the summer of 2020 and is expected to be complete within 1.5 months, Danieli said.
