The new wire rod mill implemented by the Pittini Group in the Acciaierie di Verona steel facility is an example of adapting the production process to the requirements of Industry 4.0.
The mill can produce wire rod between 5.5 and 25 millimetres and round bars between 6 and 18 millimetres at a speed of one hundred metres per second. Moreover, it is also equipped with two independent rolling lines, with temperature control along the entire line.
Significant Italian and international wire drawing businesses showed great interest in the technologies used and the unique process expertise that characterizes the production of the Pittini Group, after having visited the plant. Pittini’s wire rod is the ideal material in terms of quality and high mechanical characteristics for extremely specialized applications, such as steel fibres, braids, strands.
