Danieli Cheers Nucor Corp. Plate Mill Start

1/10/2023 - Along with Nucor Corp, Danieli is celebrating the rolling of the first plate at the steelmaker’s new US$1.7 billion Kentucky plate mill and calling attention to the role its equipment will play there. 

In a statement, Danieli noted that the mill is supported by advanced automation and features two heavy-duty stands. It will allow Nucor to produce thermomechanically rolled plates up to 168 inches wide and coils up to 125 inches wide.

“An EVO 5 hot leveler designed for two different types of cassettes, and a plate finishing and shearing line for the handling and cutting of 250-ft mother plates, will complete the mill that soon will become the new benchmark plant of the sector,” Danieli said in a statement. 

Danieli also said the meltshop features Danieli EAF Q-Melt and Zero Man Turn Around, a ladle metallurgy furnace, and a twin vacuum degasser.
