Nucor Sets Strip-Casting Record

Wednesday, January 16, 2008
 
Nucor Corp., Charlotte, NC, announced that its Crawfordsville, IN steel plant, which employs the Castrip process, has set a new record for sequence casting. Castrip LLC (www.castrip.com) is a joint venture of Nucor, BlueScope Steel Ltd. of Australia and IHI Corporation of Japan. The company was formed to market and license intellectual property related to the twin-roll casting of carbon and stainless steels developed jointly by its three owners. The Crawfordsville plant cast 24 ladles of steel, continuously, over a 38-hr. period in late December, 2007. Total throughput for the record-setting period was 2467 tons cast, while producing 2387 tons of prime coils. Nucor chairman and CEO Dan DiMicco said, "This record highlights not only a step change in productivity but also the remarkable strides made in product quality over the past 12 months. We are very proud of the dedication and focus of the Crawfordsville team that continues to push the envelope of strip casting.” Nucor has a second Castrip facility under construction in Blytheville, AK, scheduled for start up later this year.
