Tung Ho Steel

Minimill with groundbreaking power efficiency

Economical, efficient and environmentally sound - these are the 3 E's of the SMS minimill at Tung Ho Steel. It's a best-practice example of groundbreaking power efficiency. Using a temperature equalization induction heater, the plant cuts energy consumption by directly linking the melt shop to the mill.

Billets arrive at the mill within an optimal temperature range, so no reheating is necessary. But they still require temperature equalization because the surface is colder than the core. That's where our integrated induction furnace comes in. It perfectly equalizes the billet temperature over both the length and cross-section.
