Sunflag Iron and Steel Co. (part of Sunflag Group) selected Danieli India Ltd. to supply the drives and process automation for a new, 320,000-tpy SBQ bar mill in Bhandara, Maharashtra, India.
There, the Sunflag Group has set up a state-of-the-art integrated plant to produce high-quality, special steel rolled products (mild and alloy steel grades), starting from liquid pig iron and sponge iron.
The new bar rolling mill will be placed after the existing blooming mill, previously installed by Danieli Morgårdshammar, in order to produce steel bars in diameters ranging from 45 to 120 mm.
The supply includes new Level 1 automation, instrumentation, AC main drives, regenerative DC common bus technology, auxiliary drives, main stand and shear LV motors, and motor control centers for the bar mill.
Sunflag I&S chose Danieli Automation both for its consolidated know-how in rolling mill process control and for its proven capability to deliver complete automation systems in a very short time.
