Reducing the total final product cost. High-level technological solutions are combined in a unique compact installation. A small size plant can become competitive against the traditional larger minimills.
Addressed to product-cost based markets, WinLink reduces the requirements of both the capital and operation expenditures. A reduction of the total final product cost is provided through high-level technological solutions in compact installation. A micro-size smart plant has become more than competitive to the traditional larger minimills. WinLink is the innovative technology for endless or semi-endless production of long products from liquid steel without interruption. A high-speed caster is directly linked to a high-availability rolling mill, where the conventional billet furnace is replaced by an advanced induction unit, resulting in a compact and energy efficient production line. WinLink enables low investment expenditures, reduced transformation costs, significant energy savings, higher yield, smaller land requirements and reduced emissions of carbon dioxide. It represents the excellent solution to replace existing lines or to enter into new market areas.
