Wuhan Iron & Steel (Wisco) uses its CSP® plant primarily for manufacturing strip from high-quality steel grades such as electric- sheet or dual-phase steels. What convinced our customer to adopt CSP® were the ideal process conditions it delivers for materials that require precise temperature control.
Particularly striking is the metallurgical length of 10,305 mm, so that the CSP® casters at Wisco are currently the world's longest. They achieve high production rates with large slab thicknesses. A key stand- out feature is a rotating high-pressure descaling system in the exit section of the caster. It efficiently removes sticky scale from Si strip for smooth furnace operation. The seven-stand rolling mill delivers high degrees of deformation and small final gauges for wide strip.
