Marcegaglia has set up its by far biggest steel metallurgy plant in Ravenna, as well as the nerve-center for integrated logistics to supply each production and distribution facility of the industrial group.
Spreading over a 540,000-mq surface (250,000 covered) between the left bank of the channel-harbor and the industrial area on the northern city seashore, the complex hosts the most technologically advanced machines for chemical pickling, cold rolling, annealing, galvanizing and pre-painting of steel coils and a service center for slitting and cut-to-length of carbon steel coils.
The plant employs 885 workers.
Steel coils delivered daily by sea to the harbor dock of the Marcegaglia plant in Ravenna are converted into finished products through several processing stages in its manufacturing plants.
The steel is pickled, to remove the oxides from the coil surface, then trimmed at the edges, to ensure a constant width, and skinpassed to achieve a premium planarity.
After pickling, the coils are cold-rolled to reduce the thickness, processed through the static annealing cycle and the final skinpassing or through the hot dip galvanizing line.
Part of the production of galvanized coils feeds the pre-painting line, for the production of pre-painted strips ready for customers’ use.
A brand new combined coating line is capable of galvanizing and pre-painting inline, adding greater capacity and flexibility to the production mix in Ravenna.
The service center area is dedicated to the finishing, cut-to-length and packaging of processed flat products.
