Continuous bloom caster and long-product rolling mills from Primetals Technologies started up at Hyundai
In October, a continuous bloom casting machine, a large bar rolling mill and a small bar and wire rod mill supplied by Primetals Technologies were started up at the new special steel mill of Korean steel maker Hyundai Steel in Dangjin. The caster is designed to produce 1.1 million metric tons of blooms per year. It features the 200th application of the monitoring system Mold Expert. The large bar rolling mill produces one million metric tons of end round products as well as billets for the small bar and wire rod mill. The order had been awarded to Primetals Technologies in early 2014. Both caster and large bar rolling mill were started up almost a month ahead of the scheduled date.
