A new generation of future-oriented casting-rolling complexes.
The direct linking of casting and rolling processes is an essential factor to minimize energy consumption in rolling, improve product consistency, and maximize yield. Unison has direct linked casting and rolling solutions for both flat and long products.
ARVEDI ESP - REAL ENDLESS STRIP PRODUCTION
The trailblazing endless strip production technology offers the promise of revolutionizing flat-steel production in the same way that LD converter steelmaking technology and continuous casting changed the face of the steelmaking industry in the previous century. A wide range of high-quality and ultra-thin steel grades can be produced with the endless cast-rolling process.
The Arvedi ESP process produces hot strip in a combined, continuous and uninterrupted casting and rolling process. In this type of plant, the energy consumption and the associated costs are up to 45 percent lower than those of conventional casting and rolling processes. This also means a significant reduction of CO2 emissions. With a length of just 180 meters, the plants also have considerably more compact dimensions than conventional casting and rolling mills. A wide range of high-quality and ultra-thin steel grades can be produced with the endless cast-rolling process.
WINLINK — THE DIRECT ROLLING OF BARS
