INTECO Group to build caster for Jiangsu Sha Gang, China

In December 2014 the INTECO Group was awarded with the engineering and delivery of a new 5 strand bloom caster by Jiangsu Sha Gang Group. Jiangsu Sha Gang is located in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China and ranges among the top ten steel producers worldwide with an annual production capacity of over 35 million tons.

The new 5-strand caster is designed for a bloom size of 300 × 400 mm and shall be used to produce engineering steels, spring steels and bearing steels as well as highest-quality tire cord grades. INTECO will be responsible for the complete engineering and supply of key mechanical components, electrics, Level 1 and Level 2 automation with technological packages as well as implementation and commissioning services.

The caster is a 9 m vertical bending machine, featuring latest state-of-the-art developments such as INTECO TBR’s high precision mould level master, hydraulic oscillation, dynamic air-mist spray cooling, dynamic mechanical soft reduction based on INTECO’s high-end 3D solidification model, on line bloom surface temperature measurement and on line quenching. As a last highlight, the direct link to Sha Gang’s rolling mill with hot charging facilities must be mentioned.

The delivery of equipment for this project will be in late 2015 and the first heat is planned for mid-2016.
