The launch of Dana Steel Processing Industry Ajman Coil Service Center #4 has taken place at a new facility in Ajman Al Jurf 2 Industrial Area.This is the Group’s 4th Coil Service Center in the region. The commissioning of the new unit will increase Steel processing capacity by 250,000 metric tonnes annually. Experience of cutting-edge Korean companies was used in designing the new Cut To Length and Slitting machine for Dana Group’s new project in Ajman. The new cut to length line will be able to process steel coils of maximum 40 MT in weight, in a thickness range of 0.1 mm to 15 mm, in coil width of 800 mm to 2,000 mm and of all grades including commercial, shipbuilding and high tensile strength coils. DANA Steel stated that this is one of the most modern cut to length lines in the region capable of handling heavy and wide coils. The unit is fitted with modern equipment, and all processes are computer-controlled to set up different modes and speeds of Steel Slitting and Cutting. Special attention was paid to environmentally-friendly technological solutions to minimizing the unit’s environmental footprint.
