Industeel Belgium successfully implements €18m upgrade of thick slab cast

Industeel, ArcelorMittal’s subsidiary specialized in the production of hot rolled steel plates, ingots and formed pieces, has successfully upgraded its thick slab caster in collaboration with Danieli. The investment project had a volume of €18 million.

The revamped slab caster at Industeel’s Charleroi plant in Belgium is now designed to produce slabs with a thickness of up to 355mm thick and a width of up to 2.2m, in stainless, carbon and low alloyed steel grades. The upgrade enables Industeel Belgium to produce the thickest stainless steel slabs available on the market.

The new slab caster has come on-line at the end of 2015 and the first hot rolled plates have been tested successfully in terms of metallurgical quality. “Thanks to this new technology, the plant is extending its plate dimensional capacity to 20 tonnes unit weight and up to 175mm thickness, in order to meet the demands of the heavy plate market”, comments Luc Libersens, Plant Director at ArcelorMittal Charleroi.

Bertrand Jacquier, CEO at Industeel, adds: “This project will allow Industeel to offer a larger dimensional range of special grades such as HIC resistant and CrMo grades for pressure vessels, high-strength steels, stainless steels, alloyed steels for plastic injection moulds. It will further improve our competitiveness on these markets and complete the dimensional range with the extra-heavy plates produced by Industeel France via the ingot route.”
