SGJT leads the way for the future of thin slab casting & rolling.
Danieli, in consortium with the Japanese electrical company TMEIC, will supply an innovative Danieli Universal Endless (DUE®) plant to Shougang Jingtang United Iron & Steel Co. Ltd. - SGJT, P.R. China, to produce 2,100,000 tpy of high value-added products, for the new facility in Caofeidian.
For the first time ever, coil-to-coil and endless, thermo-mechanical and multi-phase, ultra-thin and thick products are now all possible in a single production line, making both niche products with high value-added and the mass production commodities segment within reach of this new plant concept.
With its characteristics of low consumption, low emissions and high efficiency, the DUE® perfectly fits to the “new normal” vision that establishes the guidelines for industrial development in the People’s Republic of China, which includes the steelmaking sector.
After several years of successful co-operation, SGJT once again confirmed its trust in and satisfaction with the “product” supplied by Danieli, placing another order to the Group for a Danieli Universal Endless (DUE®) plant, to be installed in Caofeidian Industrial Area, Tangshan City, Hebei Province, P.R. China.
