Marcel Van Reimersdahl graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 2008. He started working in the R&D department of SMS group in Düsseldorf focusing on the continuous improvement of thin slab casting and rolling technology (CSP) and technological sales support. In January 2016, he joined Danieli Germany in Duisburg as a Senior Technology Manager for rolling technologies. He is responsible for technological sales support, performance guarantees and technological process calculations of TechTeam.

Topic: Danieli Unversal Endless- DUE: First Ever Universal Solution For Flat Products
Abstract: Danieli has progressively developed over the years a new generation of thin slab casting and rolling layout, marking a new phase in the evolution of this process. The new step-ahead is a new development within the Quality Strip Production (QSP) family, which is the Danieli’s strip-quality-oriented thin slab based plants. What makes this new concept different is the ability of “universal” rolling modes thanks to the fact that, now, within one single plant it is possible to perform different rolling modes, making this plant a major technology innovation compared to the previous generation. This new approach can be seen as the natural evolution of the original, successful Danieli concepts that marked the progress of the thin slab route, namely the application of the vertical curved design thin slab caster and the separation of the rolling stands into high reduction units and finishing units.
