The CSP® plant will enable SDI to produce thin slabs with thicknesses of up to 130 millimeters (5.2") and slab widths of up to 2,134 millimeters (84"). The CSP® continuous caster is designed as a single-strand curved mold plant (VLB – Vertical Liquid Bending). With a metallurgical length of over 25 meters (82ft), a yield of 7.5 tons per minute and casting speeds of up to 6 meters/min (19.7ft/min) are attained. An eight-stand rolling mill will enable SDI to produce API hot strip grades with thicknesses up to 25.4 mm (1") and widths up to 2,134 millimeters (84"). The mill is designed for a minimal strip thickness of 1.2 mm (0.047").
