December 2023 | Habaş Group, a key player in the industry, has partnered with Danieli to enhance its presence in the flat-products sector. The tin-plate complex, situated in Aliağa near Izmir, will address the burgeoning demands of the packaging industry and the increasing need for cold-rolled and annealed thin sheets.
The facility, with a capacity of 900,000 tons per year, will produce a diverse range of steel grades, including T1 to T4 and DR7 to DR10. Among its offerings are 250,000 tons of tinplate, 150,000 tons of thin, continuous annealed cold-rolled coil, and 500,000 tons of semi-finished products. The complex comprises four crucial process areas: electrolytic cleaning, cold rolling and tempering, electrolytic tinning, and continuous annealing.
Ensuring environmental sustainability, the cleaning section will maintain a sealed environment to prevent emissions. The two-stand DCR temper mill, equipped with state-of-the-art features, will produce material with high-quality properties and surface roughness.
The dual-purpose electrolytic-tinning line will yield tinplate and tin-free steel products, while the continuous annealing line, featuring a powerful radiant-tube furnace and dedicated cleaning and DCR-Double Cold Reduction mill, will ensure the production of high-grade tinplate and cold-rolled strip.
Scheduled to commence operations from late 2024, the complex will utilize Danieli Automation electrical equipment and control systems, marking a significant step towards technological advancement in the industry.
