Endless rolling tech for Italian EAF minimill

Italian steelmaker Ferriera Valsabbia SpA has contracted Primetals Technologies to supply ERT-EBROS endless rolling technology to the company’s bar rolling mill in Odolo, Brescia province. The new equipment will boost output and utilisation levels, claims Primetals.

What is endless rolling technology? “The system welds together billets intended for rolling, thus enabling a continuous rolling process with a consistently high product quality,” explained Primetals.

Ferriera Valsabbia was established in 1954 and operates an EAF-based minimill with an annual production capacity of 900kt. It is among the largest rebar producers in Italy.
