Vietnam-Japan Steel (Vija), established in 1999, is a local steel maker based in Hai Phong. Its production units consist of two plants integrating meltshops and a rolling mill for bar and wire rod to fulfil the local market.
The “Micromill Danieli” (Mi.Da) will now be installed in Vietnam. This ground-breaking solution for small-scale / low-cost production of rebar products, represents a step forward in the Minimill design, featuring an ultra-compact layout for lower investment and competitive transformation costs.
The new Mi.Da. will produce 350 000 t/y of rebar products from 10 to 41 mm in bundles, with length from 9 to 15 m, and with a maximum weight of 4 t, from a casting section of 150 mm square billets coming from a single-strand fast-cast machine, equipped with Fast Cast Cube and Power Mould technologies.
The connected rolling mill is configured with 18 housingless stands, in-line QTB system for quenching and self-tempering deformed bars, a 66 m x 10 m rake type cooling bed with associated cutting-to-length services, short bar, counting and bundling, tying and final collecting bundles.
