Siemens to modernize long-product rolling mill for Korean special steel producer

26.07.2010
Siemens VAI Metals Technologies has received an order from Posco Specialty Steel Co. Ltd., a Korean special steel producer, to modernize the long-product rolling mill in its Changwon Works.

The plant will be equipped with a new breakdown mill, and existing parts of the plant will be brought up to the state-of-the-art. Furthermore, new electrical and automation equipment will be installed throughput the entire production plant. The order is worth more than ten million euros, and the modernization is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011.

The Changwon long-product rolling mill comprises a compact cassette (CCR) rolling mill, a flat block line – both of which Siemens installed in 2004 – and a blooming mill. Within the scope of the modernization project, Siemens is supplying a reversible, single stand breakdown mill with a roll diameter of 1200 millimeters, as well as the secondary plant equipment. This includes the entry and exit tables, handling devices between the mill passes, and material transfer facilities. Shears, saws and a roll exchange system complete the scope of supply.

The breakdown mill is designed to turn out 365,000 tons per annum, and can produce a wide range of long products. These include bar steels with diameters from 90 to 350 millimeters, slabs with cross-sections of 200 by 1250 millimeters, and flats ranging in thickness from 28 to 280 millimeters and in width from 750 to 1250 millimeters. Siemens will also be supplying cutting saws for the CCR mill and the flat block line. All parts of the plant will be equipped with new, standardized electrical and automation equipment. Siemens will also be responsible for supervising construction and commissioning, and will provide the customer training.

The Siemens Industry Sector (Erlangen, Germany) is the worldwide leading supplier of environmentally friendly production, transportation, building and lighting technologies. With integrated automation technologies and comprehensive industry-specific solutions, Siemens increases the productivity, efficiency and flexibility of its customers in the fields of industry and infrastructure. The Sector consists of six divisions: Building Technologies, Drive Technologies, Industry Automation, Industry Solutions, Mobility und Osram.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
