No.15 Special Issue on "Steel Bar and Wire Rod"
Demand for special steels has grown dramatically in recent years, centering on the automobile industry. In order to respond to this demand, JFE Steel has increased its steel bar and wire rod production capacity. It was possible to increase total production capacity by 40% by increasing the capacity of the round billet finishing line at the Billet Mill and the bar finishing line at the Wire Rod and Bar Mill, as these are the bottleneck processes in the two plants. This report introduces the content of these expansion projects.
