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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
