Danieli to Upgrade Yehuda Steel Rebar Mill in Israel
Israel’s Yehuda Steel has awarded Danieli the contract to supply a new 5 tonne spooler line at its existing rolling facility commissioned in 2017 as it continues to strengthen positions in the long steel segment through investments in new equipment. The new equipment will be installed completely off-line with minimal influence on production and is expected to come on stream during August 2022.
The new line will allow Yehuda Steel to produce extremely compact and twist-free rebar coils (8-25-mm) weighing up to 5 tonne as well as give the possibility to manufacture bars in coils from 7.5 to 16 mm diameter. Currently, the nominal productivity is 38 tonnes per hour, but the equipment is able to make 63 tonnes per hour if the continuous casting machine and roiling mill are upgraded.
The Yehuda Group is the largest and leading company in Israel for the recycling of steel, smelting, casting, rolling, production of steel welded mesh, fencing, cutting, bending, and preparation of steel for building sites, etc. The group has ten factories throughout the country and its products are greatly used in the building industry, for infrastructures, security, and agriculture in Israel. Yehuda Steel is able to produce up to 250,000 tonnes of rebar annually and has also a cut and bend facility, a mesh plant and fence production
