Danieli Lands Order for Bar Mill Caster, Secondary Metallurgy Station
According to Danieli, the caster will run commercial grades, low-carbon, peritectic and medium-carbon grades. It will be equipped with Danieli’s Fast Cast Cube oscillator (FCC) with a Hy-Power actuator, which will optimize casting stability and product quality while substantially improving caster up-time by reducing maintenance activities.
The caster also will be designed to allow for future submerged casting, Danieli said.
The new stirring station will be installed in-line with the electric arc furnace tapping car and will feature an operator-friendly layout with C-shape cars and an automatic ladle lifting system.
Ferroalloys will be automatically fed at the stirring station through a dedicated material handling system designed to be upgraded in the future in order to add automatic tapping functions, Danieli said.
The project includes new level 1 and level 2 automation, and the new caster will be equipped with Danieli Automation's Q3 Intelligence capability.
