On Tuesday, March 24th, the first billet was rolled on the rebar and wire rod mill of Silat (Siderúrgica Latino-Americana), located in Caucaia, Brazil. During the day, many billets measuring 130 mm x 130 mm x 12,000 mm were rolled and the 20mm bars were discharged onto the cooling bed.
Hot testing progressed quickly in the following weeks with 25mm, 16 mm two slitting, and 10mm bars, using the 4 slitting scheme. The rolling mill is fed by a 90 tph walking hearth reheating furnace. The plant layout includes a 20-stand continuous mill with two outlets, one for straight bar and the other for wire rod in coil. The rod outlet includes a one 10-stand, high-speed twist-free finishing block fed from the bar mill finishing stands. The smaller bar sizes are produced on four strands, to take advantage of the mill´s capacity for the entire product range.
