Danieli to supply Ohio melting facility

Danieli has been awarded a contract by Charter Steel to provide a 75-ton electric arc furnace, ladle metallurgical furnace, a single-tank vacuum degasser and a four-strand, 9-meter radius continuous caster designed to cast up to 200 millimeter square sections for Charter’s new steel making facility under construction near Cleveland, USA. The new Cuyahoga Heights melting operation will support Charter Steel’s existing rod and bar-in-coil rolling mill and is scheduled to begin production in April of 2006. The new melting facility will initially produce 350,000 annual tons of carbon and alloy steels to serve new and existing customers using cold heading, cold forging, specialty spring, bearing, high-carbon, and free-machining steels for automotive, aerospace, agricultural, and construction applications. Charter Steel officials said production will be increased to about 700,000 annual tons, when needed.
Charter Steel is a full service supplier of hot-rolled as well as processed steel rod, bar-in-coil and wire in diameters from .140 to 1.56 inches and has manufacturing and distribution facilities in Wisconsin and Ohio. It was established in 1978 and is a division of Charter Manufacturing Company, a privately held company headquartered in Mequon, Wisconsin.
