1,800,000 Tpy Mini Mill produces both
Slab and Hot Rolled Coils Re:25925


This is a fully working Mini Mill from Scrap Melting to finished product.

It was designed to produce two separate products and incorporates the use of three (3) Casters to do so. The products and Casters being used are as follows:

1.) Hot Rolled Coils up to 1560mm wide x up to 16mm thick in 28 ton coils.

It uses two SMS 55mm CSP straight bending type Casters to feed the Rolling Mill to produce the Hot Rolled Strip from 900mm (35.4") to 1560mm (61.4") wide in thicknesses from 1.4mm (0.055") to 16mm (0.630") in 28 ton coils.

2.) Slabs up to 250mm thick

It uses the third Caster which is a Sumitomo 210mm Vertical Bending single strand Slab Caster for the purpose of producing Slabs up to 250mm thick.

This is a complete Mini Mill consisting of a fully equipped Melt Shop with (2) 150 ton EAF's, (2) 150 ton LF's and (3) Casters. The Casters are fed by (2) 260 ton Ladle Turrets and a 28 to 30 ton Tundish utilizing a Funnel Mold.

A Soaking Pit for additional heating and a High-Pressure Water Descaler are utilized enroute to the 4-Hi 6-Stand Rolling Mill which processes slabs from the SMS 55mm CSP straight bending type Casters to the desired thickness for finishing into 28 ton coils.

A Laminar applies inner and outer cooling. A Dual Rewinder/Coiler System then winds cooled strips into coils, a Skin Pass Mill Stand packages temper rolls and products, an Equalizer (EQ) packages products after rolling and shaping then onto the Coiling System which puts out the 28 ton coils.

It is important to note that this Mini Mill is designed with "CEM Process" capability known as Compact Endless Casting & Rolling. This feature is incorporated when producing Hot Strip into Coils. It is an innovative process used to integrate the Casting & Rolling processes in a single manufacturing line and is used to achieve Endless or Continuous production through the Key Technologies of High Speed Casting and Inline Rolling by Direct Process Linking.

The Mill is fully installed and a video showing the operation is available for viewing. A Live video tour of the Mill may be arranged on request .
