Jianlong Beiman commissions SMS to supply components for wire rod mill
The centerpiece of the new wire rod mill, which has an annual capacity of 5,00,000 tons, is the ten-stand wire rod finishing block. To comply with the high metallurgical requirements of the finished products, the wire rod mill has been designed for low-temperature rolling. This is achieved by installing a cooling and equalizing loop upstream of the block. The rolling schedule includes wire rod with diameters from 5.5 to 25 millimeters, and rebar with diameters ranging from 6 to 16 millimeters, which are finish-rolled at speeds of up to 115 meters per second. In addition to the wire rod finishing block, the scope of supply also includes two cantilever compact roughing stands, the group of shears upstream of the block, and the loop laying head including pinch roll unit.
