Carbon product producer Hanzhong Iron & Steel Group Company, Ltd. will expand its capacity with a new wire rod mill supplied by Siemens VAI Metals Technologies. The plant will be in Ding Jun Shan Town, Mian County in Shaanxi Province, China. When commissioned, the mill will produce 600,000 tons per year. Built in collaboration with CISDI Engineering Co., Ltd., the project is expected to start up in early 2013.

For the new wire rod mill of Hanzhong Iron & Steel, Siemens will design and supply a Morgan No-Twist mill, Morgan Rod Reducing/Sizing mill, pinch roll and laying head. In addition, Siemens VAI is designing shears, the Morgan Stelmor conveyor and the reform area of the new rod mill. The new equipment is designed to reach speeds of 112 meters per second. The mill will produce 5 mm to 22 mm plain rod.

Hanzhong Iron and Steel is a subsidiary of Shaanxi Steel Group. Many of its production lines were damaged by an earthquake in May 2008. Several local steel mills merged with Hanzhong in 2009 to consolidate the Province's steelmaking production for the local market. After all restoration projects are complete, the company expects to have a steel capacity of more than 10 million tons.
