Lusosider again selects Danieli Service for revamping projects
by David Fleschen
Lusosider Aços Planos S.A, part of the Brazilian CSN Group, selected Danieli Service to upgrade the payoff reel in its pickling line No.2 at Aldeia de Paio Pires, Portugal.
The project will consist of replacing the existing mandrel –complete with main gears and main bearings- with a new, tailor-made designed equipment, which will be supplied along with on-site advisory services for erection and commissioning.
The new mandrel will precede the supply of a new outboard bearing to limit the current mandrel deflection under coil load and strip tension, to improve the final product quality significantly, namely by improving strip centering and consequently strip flatness.
The installation of new equipment will be performed during October 2024.
This project further consolidates collaboration developed between Danieli Service and Lusosider over the years, which included the revamping of the cold-rolling mill, as well as technology products supplied for strip processing and rolling lines.
