Italian plantmaker Danieli has announced that it completed the modernization of the spooler line for bar mill No. 2 of Italian long steel producer Alfa Acciai, which can now implementing for the first time simultaneous coiling of small-diameter rods by two coilers as part of a single line. The upgrade allows the company to increase its production of coiled rod products, in line with current market demand. It also results in a significant improvement in the characteristics and mechanical properties of the finished coils.

With the modernization, it is possible for both strands to feed two coilers simultaneously. As a result, Alfa Acciai will increase its spooled bar output from 50 percent to 80 percent of hourly production and reduce its straight bar output to 20 percent of the total.

Alfa Acciai is one of the main EAF-based producers in Italy, with an annual capacity of 2.5 million mt.
