Turkish Producer Signs FAC for New Annealing Furnaces 

4/6/2020 - Turkish steelmaker Atakaş has issued the final acceptance certificate for six new Danieli-built bell annealing furnaces installed at its Iskenderun plant. 

“The upgraded facility now is capable of processing prime-quality annealed sheet products of cold-rolled carbon steel for the general and automotive markets – CQ, DQ, DDQ and EDDQ quality, according to the related international standards,” the company said. 

Danieli said the order consisted of three furnace bells and three cooling bells, which complement the existing eight-base line installed and started-up by Danieli in 2018. 

The furnaces are capable of processing coils in diameters of up to 2,000 mm, with strip thickness ranging from 0.3 up to 2.0 mm.
