Topic 1: Energy saving: the high-speed solutions in Danieli conticasters
Abstract: This technology resulted from the multidisciplinary approach adopted in past decades to develop high-speed casting solutions capable of coping with the continually increasing market demand for higher productivity and higher operational flexibility, with OpEx reduction. FastCast is a new generation of conticasters that will improve productivity by increasing the strand output, and thus reducing the number of strands to be installed. The core of the FastCast Technology is the combination of Power / Eco Power MouldTM and the FastCastCubeTM oscillator. This unique equipment makes it possible to achieve unique results in terms of strand productivity, up to 50% higher than conventional solutions.
Abstract: Since the beginning of the 2000’s the technologies and methods used to produce wire rod have changed significantly. These new concepts have led our customers to invest (or to optimize their investments) because they believe that the market will continue to grow once this current economic crisis is over: together with the mill equipment suppliers, wire-rod producers sense the urgency to find innovative solutions that will increase the quality of their products, and provide considerable energy savings with improved mill performance. Danieli, as a world leader in the construction and installation of large steelmaking plants, has made great strides in assisting its customers, and/or prospective customers, to reach the rising global standards.
