Completion of Cold-Rolling Line Project Continuous Annealing and Processing Line (C.A.P.L.TM) for Anyang Iron & Steel (China)

Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd. (Representative Director and President: Shinichi Fujiwara; Head Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; hereinafter, "NSENGI") is pleased to announce that construction has been completed for the cold-rolling line project Continuous Annealing and Processing Line (C.A.P.L.TM) at the Anyang Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (hereinafter, "Anyang Iron & Steel"). The construction was a joint project with our joint-venture company CN Steel Plant Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereinafter, "CNSE").

This cold-rolling line project included construction for one Pickling Line Tandem Cold Mill (PLTCM), one Continuous Annealing and Processing Line (C.A.P.L.TM), and one Continuous Hot-Dip Galvanizing Line (CGL). Our Group delivered the Continuous Annealing and Processing Line (C.A.P.L.TM)*1. This C.A.P.L.TM has a production capacity of 700,000 tons per year and the highest threading speed of the process section is 450 meters per minute. It is one of the largest C.A.P.L.TM in China for home appliances and construction materials. This project was the first consortium project between NSENGI and our Chinese joint-venture company CNSE. We received the order in 2011 in recognition of our Group's outstanding capabilities including high-level equipment technical ability based on our extensive record of delivering equipment, as well as our reliable after-sales service system. Full operation of the project began from August of last year.

Our Group has delivered approximately 90 C.A.P.L.TM and Continuous Hot-Dip Galvanizing Lines (CGL) throughout the world. We have accumulated advanced technology through extensive construction of C.A.P.L.TM and CGL, and our collaboration with CNSE enables us to provide this technology at competitive prices, thus responding to a variety of customer needs.

(*1) A Continuous Annealing and Processing Line (C.A.P.L.TM) uses heat processing to change the crystal structure of cold-rolled sheets that have been pickled and rolled after the hot-rolling process, thus improving properties such as hardness, strength, and elongation. A C.A.P.L.TM also achieves high quality and low running cost through continuous and stable performance of five processes (cleaning, heating, cooling, temper rolling, and finishing) in a single line.
