Real Endless Strip Production: What The Future Holds

Endless Casting & Rolling

Arvedi ESP is the first hot rolling process ever to produce cold rolled substitutes. A big varieties of final products are now produced directly from ESP hot band without implementing a cold rolling process. Energy consumption and related CO2 emissions are drastically reduced. ESP is implemented in EAF and BOF plants and produces steel grades from Low Carbon to Advanced High Strength Steels.
