New Danieli Magnesium Alloy Sheet Plant for Youli
Featuring Danieli Fata Hunter Twin-Roll Casting technology
Youli showed its trust in Danieli Fata Hunter Twin Roll Casting technology with an order for a new plant to be installed in the new magnesium sheet complex in Shandong, China.
The new Twin Roll Caster will be designed for hot-rolled coils for strip from 4 to 7 mm thick (mechanical capacity up to 10mm) and in width from 900 to 1,425 mm.
The TRC stand features the well-known and already successfully proven configuration of the SuperCaster Plus® with 15° inclination, to guarantee superb geometrical and mechanical properties of the final magnesium alloy AZ31B, a typical product for the automotive industry. The line is completed with pinch-roll, travelling shear and coiler.
A Danieli Fata Hunter Optiflow® ceramic fiber nozzle is used to deliver the molten magnesium into the nip between the caster rolls. Any area where liquid metal may potentially be exposed to the atmosphere is protected by a cover gas.
Danieli Automation will develop and supply the full electrical and automation equipment for the casting line, along with on-line instrumentation and motors.
