Ferriera Valsabbia raising rebar output by 50%


Italian long steel producer Ferriera Valsabbia intends to increase its output of rebar by 50% and has ordered new endless rolling technology to do so, according to equipment supplier Primetals.

Rebar output will rise to 900,000 tonnes per year from the company’s existing bar rolling mill in Odolo, northern Italy, compared with the 600,000 tpy which the line was previously able to produce, according to the Metal Bulletin Company Database.

“The aim is to boost plant output and utilization levels. The system welds together billets intended for rolling, thus enabling a continuous rolling process with a consistently high product quality,” Primetals said.
