Steel Production

World's first 3-strand continuous slab caster starts production
In September 2023, Chinese steel manufacturer Tangshan Donghua Iron and Steel commissioned the world's first 3-strand slab caster. The new 3-strand solution offers several advantages: With three strands, the plant achieves a significantly higher production capacity than conventional 2-strand casting plants. Two conventional 2-strand systems with a similar capacity would have required around twice as much space and correspondingly higher investment costs. In comparison, the operating and maintenance costs are also lower. 

Data-supported image processing for surface defect detection and evaluation in flat steel products
At thyssenkrupp Steel, an innovative process based on automated, camera-assisted surface inspection for the early detection and processing of surface serial defects in flat steel products has been successfully developed and introduced into production. The method can be used to successfully detect and process serial defects in preliminary units that are difficult to identify. The method developed enables the quality manager responsible to initiate early and proactive corrective measures to reduce or avoid quality costs. 
New cold rolling mill for the high-end production of silicon steel and AHSS
With the commissioning of a new cold strip line, thyssenkrupp Steel is able to produce harder and thinner flat steel products that are used in cars and electric motors. It is the world's first double reversing mill with Hyper UCM silicon steel technology, which offers a significantly higher production output than a single-stand cold rolling mill.

Plant engineering

Powerful industrial planetary gearboxes
With the P2.e generation, SEW-EURODRIVE is expanding its product portfolio in the field of industrial planetary gear units. Compactness, flexibility and a high thermal limit power make the gear unit the ideal solution for continuously operated heavy-duty applications with limited installation space. 


Importance of data exchange in calculating the carbon footprint and process development
The exchange of data between suppliers and customers is a challenging task. Data is currently used for process development (e.g. for refractory materials) as well as for the development of quality predictions. Thinking further, the data can be used to calculate the CO2 footprint, for example.
Application of AI to improve the thermal management of torpedo ladle trolleys
The thermal management of torpedo ladle cars plays an important role in the transport of hot metal from the blast furnace to the steelworks. This paper presents the development of an AI system to support decision-making in the selection of the most energy-efficient torpedo car. The application uses a simulation-based digital twin consisting of reduced-order models of validated FEM models to predict the temperatures of the refractory lining and hot metal in the torpedo ladles.

Steel Trading, Distribution and Processing

CO2-reduced steel products from BENTELER receive new label
With the introduction of the CliMore® brand, the BENTELER Steel/Tube Division will in future summarise its CO2-reduced steels and steel tube products under a uniform and catchy product brand. Three label levels - Advantage, Ambition and Excellence - characterise how the steels or tubes were produced and which types of energy were used. The first CliMore® hydraulic line pipes were delivered to a German manufacturer of agricultural and construction machinery in November 2023. 
HEINE+BEISSWENGER's strategy for outsourcing processing
Steel traders often offer additional services - such as processing - as part of steel service centres. This raises the question of when an original steel trader becomes a manufacturing company. On the one hand, processing can be carried out "in-house", for which the steel trader maintains and invests in its own machinery. Or the steel trader can go down the outsourcing route and look for service providers to take over the processing for him. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages. HEINE+BEISSWENGER uses the example of saws to illustrate the entrepreneurial approach. 
Relocation of heat treatment plants
AICHELIN Service has coordinated and implemented the relocation of two AICHELIN chamber furnace lines for Winning BLW GmbH, a leading company in the field of precision solid forming. These were moved from different locations to Winning's new plant in Penzberg (Bavaria). One of the two lines has already been successfully in operation since July 2023, while the second is due to be commissioned by the end of 2023.

Interview: Technology trends for the production of long steel products
Dr Thomas Maßmann, Executive Vice President Long Products at SMS group, answers questions about the presentation at wire & Tube and current market developments. The Hybar project in the USA (rebar production with green energy in a continuous process) will be explained. He also talks about the benefits and importance of the service business for SMS group.

New standards in hydrogen tube technology
The Steel/Tube Division of metal process specialist BENTELER has expanded its HYRESIST product range. The HYRESIST line pipes are specially designed for transporting hydrogen, as the energy carrier of the future places high demands on the material properties of the steel pipe. Users from industry, the mobility and energy sectors now have more options when it comes to finding the right line pipe for their individual hydrogen projects.

Steel production / plant engineering

Schmiedewerke Gröditz renews electric arc furnace with KSK technology
KSK and Schmiedewerke Gröditz announce the completion of a milestone. The 50 t electric arc furnace has been modernised. The new water-cooled furnace roof in tubular design, including dust chamber and recooling circuit, was successfully put into operation at Schmiedewerke Gröditz. The furnace characteristics, the KSK components and their properties are described.

Precise in-line thickness and width measurement in the manufacture of flat products
Mecorad had further developed the capabilities of the "wtl series" radar measurement solutions. The wtl series provides precise and robust information from the most difficult process stages in continuous casting and hot rolling of flat, long or heavy plates. The software on which the solution is based distributes digital information to each production stage for flexible production and beyond.

Cleaning exhaust air systems with sound pressure
Exhaust air systems in steelworks are exposed to high dust loads at high temperatures, which leads to dust deposits in individual components. Known consequences of this contamination are increased pressure losses, greatly reduced heat transfer, imbalances on fans, clogged filters, etc., which leads to reduced productivity and even damage. Cleaning is therefore carried out at defined intervals. If the system has to be shut down for this, production downtimes usually have to be accepted. In order to keep the production plant permanently clean, permanently installed sonic horns can be used to remove dirt from the system during the ongoing process by means of sonic pressure.


Powerful industrial planetary gearboxes
With the P2.e generation, SEW-EURODRIVE is expanding its product portfolio in the field of industrial planetary gear units. Compactness, flexibility and a high thermal limit power make the gear unit the ideal solution for continuously operated heavy-duty applications with limited installation space.


Optimisation of data exchange in steel mill processes 
The article describes the importance of digitalisation in the context of the steel manufacturer's collaboration with refractory suppliers. It discusses the importance of data exchange and describes data collection during production. Optimisation potential is explained, such as the creation of a data collection plan. This supports the discussion among experts and is still superior to AI as a tool. Finally, cooperation with customers is explained.

A needle in a haystack in seconds
Over 1,600 tonnes of metal, rolled into coils, pass through the BILSTEIN Group's production facilities every day. To eliminate the risk of mix-ups, the global player relies on the ibaDatawyzer-ICC coil identification software from iba AG. For coil identification, ibaDatawyzer-ICC primarily uses the longitudinal thickness profile of the rolled coil.

AI-supported software in order management
GLA-WEL GmbH, an owner-managed, medium-sized metalworking company based in Melle, Lower Saxony, relies on AI-supported software for its order management. The solution enables the metal contract manufacturer to successfully automate customer orders and enquiries and increase efficiency. Incoming orders from customers vary greatly and include up to 100 different items. It used to take several hours to enter such an order manually. The newly introduced AI-based software, on the other hand, now manages this in just three minutes on average thanks to intelligent automation.

Steel production

Long-distance transportation of sponge iron
ArcelorMittal Germany has successfully unloaded a first test wagon from Hamburg with the preliminary product sponge iron (also known as DRI - Direct Reduced Iron) for the production of the future at the plant in Eisenhüttenstadt. This creates a supply chain at the end of which steel is produced in a climate-neutral way.
Integrated strip guiding for greater stability in hot strip production
The technological modernization of the hot strip complex in Kocaeli, Turkey, provides the steel manufacturer with significant advantages in terms of the stability of the rolling process and the production of high-quality strip, particularly with regard to strip flatness and coil shape, while reducing maintenance costs in the finishing mill.

Alloying agent addition at the ladle furnace
Deutsche Edelstahlwerke equips another ladle furnace with a wire cutter to cut off the coiled wire at the end of the alloying process. This means that the hot and welded wire ends do not have to be pulled out of the cover again. This modernization reduces wear and ensures a smooth alloying process.

Artificial intelligence in metallography
A software solution for microstructure analysis was developed under the heading “Micro Vision Analysis”. The microscope image of a microsection can be uploaded via a web application and the AI solution then evaluates and quantifies the phase proportions of the microstructure, cracks, etc. within seconds.
Special: Cranes in the steel industry
- Process cranes as individual solutions
- Cranes in steelworks - handling input material, melts and long and flat steel products

Process optimization through lean organization
Around five years ago, Cogne began to establish process optimization through lean organization at its main plant in Italy. By managing stock levels and all work steps, throughput times were reduced and stocks of consumables and spare parts were cut. Since then, the philosophy has also been gradually implemented in the subsidiaries - as is currently the case at the site near Bremen, where the Germany-wide introduction is being managed.

Transformation projects boost metallurgical plant engineering
The SMS group made significant progress in the past 2023 financial year. The plant engineering company increased its turnover and the order backlog continued to grow, not least thanks to orders for numerous decarbonisation projects worldwide. At the same time, SMS further expanded its service business, which contributed significantly to the improved result.

A new hot rolling mill for Europe
In addition to the major development projects at the steelworks on the primary routes, medium-sized companies are also investing in their steel production. This includes the Feralpi Group in Riesa, Saxony, where a new, innovative rolling mill for long products is being built. In addition, an intelligent solution for scrap processing will open up new potential for the smelting operation. At the same time, the management would like to see clear regulation from politicians to ensure competitive conditions for steel production in the region.

Danieli Innovaction Meeting with large international participation
Around 700 representatives of the international steel industry - producers, independent experts and media representatives - met at the research centre of plant manufacturer Danieli in Buttrio (near Udine) in northern Italy to take part in the specialist conference on steel technology organised by Danieli. The company representatives from all over the world represented around 60 per cent of global steel production this year. The Danieli Innovaction Meeting was first organised in 2000 as the Danieli Open Week and subsequently as the Danieli Technology Forum; it takes place approximately every five years.


Expansion of the production of zinc-magnesium coated steel strip for the solar industry
thyssenkrupp Steel has implemented further investments under Strategy 20-30 and is optimising its sites in the Siegerland region. At the plants in Ferndorf and Eichen, the company is strengthening its capabilities in hot-dip and coil-coated products. Target sectors include the solar, household appliance and agricultural machinery industries. The total investment in Siegerland is in the low double-digit million range.

Flexible use of hydrogen in electric steelworks
Badische Stahlwerke GmbH is launching a research project together with Badische Stahl-Engineering GmbH and RWTH Aachen University. The aim is to develop a new burner technology for the use of hydrogen in electric steelworks. Badische Stahlwerke not only wants to further reduce its own CO2 emissions, but also make a contribution to the decarbonisation of the entire steel industry. The project is scheduled to run for three years and is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) with 2.3 million euros.


The path to paperless materials trading
What has long been considered a relic of the past in the manufacturing industry is still standard in the steel and aluminium trade: completed and printed paper order forms. Günther + Schramm decided it was time for a paradigm shift and set out on the path to change. Together with the software developer Aureco, the system service provider for steel, stainless steel and aluminium has optimised the use of machines and at the same time increased the informative value and transparency for customers.

Economical storage and sawing
Metal processors and traders know the problem: handling long bars, tubes, profiles and sheets needs to be done efficiently and quickly. Automated solutions simplify all processes - from storing the raw material to picking the sections. And with the digital offerings, the user always has an overview of everything. This significantly increases the efficiency of storage and sawing.


Sustainable support structures for photovoltaic systems
At Intersolar, the leading trade fair for the solar industry in Munich in June, various steel manufacturers presented innovative solutions for the energy transition. These include durable, robust steel substructures for solar installations. The profiles are made of metal-coated steels, preferably with a zinc-magnesium coating, which provides long-lasting corrosion protection for the guaranteed service life of the PV systems. If the substrate material is then a CO2-reduced steel with a low CO2 footprint, this is a particularly positive contribution to environmental and climate protection in many respects.
