Tosyali Demir Çelik Sanayi A. Ş. (TOSYALI), based in Iskenderun, Turkey, and a subsidiary of Tosyali Holding, has awarded us an order for the supply of three ladle furnaces and a seven-strand high-speed combi-continuous casting machine. The equipment will be part of a new greenfield steel production facility (Sariseki) for flat and long products with a yearly output of more than 2.2 million tons. The products will be used in car manufacturing and in the construction industry, in the latter primarily as steel structures for energy transmission lines.
The three ladle furnaces will process heats of 150 tons each, serving as buffering stations for the liquid steel to harmonize the production flow and enabling high-precision control of the chemical composition, temperature and castability of the steel. With the high-speed seven-strand continuous caster designed by SMS Concast, TOSYALI opted for an innovative solution: the billet caster will be designed as a combi-caster for 150-millimeter square billets and a future extension to also include the production of blooms and beam blanks. The new meltshop is scheduled to be commissioned in early September 2022.
