UK-based plantmaker Primetals Technologies has announced that it has optimized the drive and automation equipment of the pickling line-tandem cold mill (PLTCM) No. 1 at the Dangjin plant of Hyundai Steel, a Korean steel producer, within a short period of time. The production capacity of the PLTCM was substantially increased at the same time, which now enables it to supply cold-rolled strip to an additional strip galvanizing line at the Suncheon plant.   

PLTCM No.1 at Hyundai's Dangjin site now has a capacity of around 1.8 million mt per year. It processes cold steel strip in widths ranging from 600 to 1,800 millimeters. The entry thicknesses can vary between 1.2 and 6 millimeter, and from 0.25 to 3 millimeters on the exit side. The maximum strip speed is 1,400 meters per minute. The line consists of four four-high stands and one six-high rolling stand.
