Nucor selects Danieli’s MI.DA® Micromill technology
Nucor Corporation has selected Danieli’s MI.DA® Micromill technology to expand its presence into new markets in the Midwest, with a new operation to be built at Sedalia, Missouri. This plant will be designed to produce in excess of 350,000 short tons per year of straight rebar products, in sizes, grades and custom lengths to fulfill the most demanding construction applications. The design of the mill will allow for the future installation of a spooling line for the production of twist-free, easy-to-store and transport, compact heavy coils up to 11,000 lbs.
The mill is scheduled to be in operation by the third quarter of 2019. It will be the third such mill in the USA alone and will join eight other MI.DA® Micromills with capacities ranging from 300,000 to 800,000 tons/year already (or soon to be) tons/year worldwide.
Danieli patented endless casting rolling technology ensures the best CapEx and OpEx for mill operators due to the continuous and energy-saving process, high yield and plant availability.
