In December 2015, Danieli was awarded the contract to supply advanced technology and equipment for a new wire rod line at Tsingshan Stainless Steel Group, Fujian Province, P.R. of China.
Tsingshan Group is the largest stainless steel producer in China. Today, it produces 6 Mtpy of stainless steel, and through expansion and modernization aims to produce 10 Mtpy within 2020.
Based on the customer’s request and due to the excellent performances of the existing wire rod line, also supplied by Danieli, the new project will include a 10-stand wire rod block suitable for soft reduction, a related pinch roll, and the latest version of the proven (and patented), high-tech variable inclination angle loop laying head.
In addition to the main equipment above, Danieli also will supply roller guides, a snap shear, the whole automation package and the well-known WICON program for long-products rolling simulation.
A comparable equipment package was supplied in 2010 for the existing Tsingshan wire rod mill, with 24 Star Housingless SHS type stand; a 10-stand high speed wire rod block; and a 4-stand TMB sizing block with related pinch roll and laying head. Besides this, in 2013, Danieli also supplied one complete stainless steel bar mill for the same Tsingshan group.
This new order confirms Tsingshan's satisfaction with the Danieli technology and equipment, with its excellent performances and achievements, and further strengthens Danieli Group's leading position in China.
