The new high-speed wire rod mill of Acciaierie di Verona (part of Pittini Group) produced the first coil 19 months after the contract signature. The timely start-up and the following hot test period of seven weeks, during which 25,000 t of finished wire rod in quality have been produced, reflects the long-term cooperation between Pittini Group and Danieli. Strict end-product size tolerances have been reached from the very beginning. Equipped with the most advanced wire rod technologies and in full compliance with Industry 4.0 requirements, the plant produces 750,000 t/year of plain wire rod from 5.5 to 25 mm and rebar from 6 to 18 mm at rolling speed of 100 m/sec.
