Primetals Technologies supplies ERT-EBROS billet welding system for Yongfeng Steel bar rolling mill


Chinese steel producer Shandong Laigang Yongfeng Steel Corp. (Yongfeng Steel) has placed an order

with Primetals Technologies to supply ERT-EBROS endless rolling technology for the company's

existing bar rolling mill in Qihe, Shandong province. The aim is to boost plant output and utilization levels

by three to six percent. The system welds together billets intended for rolling, thus enabling a continuous

rolling process with a consistently high product quality. The new ERT-EBROS plant is scheduled to

commence operation in the second quarter of 2017 and will pay for itself within 18 months. It is the first

system of its kind in China.
