As part of its strategy 20-30, thyssenkrupp Steel Europe selected Danieli to supply, install and commission new heavy-duty, slipper-type spindles for Hot-Strip Rolling Mill 1 at Bruckhausen plant in Duisburg, Germany.
The order consists of a complete new set of air/oil lubricated, slipper-type spindles along with all necessary equipment and spares, to replace the current spindles in operation in the hot-strip mill. The new DanJoint spindles will be designed to suit new thyssenkrupp rolling parameters, and facilitate the replacement of the existing spindles, minimizing shut-down time.
Among the exclusive technological features of the new Danieli spindles is the Danieli Torque & Temperature Monitoring System for work-condition real-time analysis to increase predictive maintenance, thus improving plant availability and reliability.
These heavy-duty DanJoint spindles ordered by thyssenkrupp will be manufactured at Danieli workshops in Italy, granting the highest quality standards, and put in service in just 8 months from the order, which is a challenging delivery time.
This is a second order for spindles for hot-strip mill revamping awarded by thyssenkrupp to Danieli.
