Steel Dynamics chooses Danieli for Product Expansion at SDI Indiana

18 August 2017

The US steel producer Steel Dynamics Inc. awarded Danieli the order for a new billet welder and spooler line to be installed at its Columbia City, Indiana facility.

The new equipment will be capable of processing 240,000 tpy of rebar from #3 to #8 and smooth rounds from 3/8” to 1-1/16” in compact coils up to 5.5 tons.

Commissioning of the new line is expected in the last quarter of 2018. This will be the 27th Danieli spooler line (58 units in all) designed and installed since 2000

The combination of billet welding and spooling technologies will maximize yield because of the endless production process. Twist-free spooled coils add value to final products because they do not require uncoiling and recoiling operations before downstream processing.
