Bluescope customers to benefit from investment in new coil plate processing line

May 20, 2014 - BlueScope has announced an investment in state-of-the-art stretch-levelling technology for the manufacture of coil plate in Australia.

This technology, not used before in BlueScope’s Australian domestic product range, will provide excellent product quality and consistency, while also allowing significant enhancements to BlueScope’s market offer for coil plate products.

With supply to commence to customers from October 2014, this new processing line will be installed adjacent to the Hot Strip Mill at BlueScope’s Port Kembla steelworks. 

BlueScope has utilised the expertise of industry leaders in stretch-levelling technology, Leveltek International LLC in West Virginia USA, and industry leaders in steel processing equipment, The Bradbury Group in Kansas USA. 

This investment means that BlueScope can provide its domestic coil plate customers with an industry-leading standard of consistently flat and memory-free coil plate products. This is expected to have a significant positive impact for customers with improvement in consistency of cutting, bending and press-forming performance.

The investment has also allowed BlueScope to significantly enhance its market offer for coil plate. Once the new processing line is operational, customers will be able to order smaller quantities on short lead times, providing exceptional value to their business.

BlueScope market manager – manufacturing, construction and mining – Ken Liddle said the investment decision had been made after considerable feedback from customers.

“Our customers have a preference to buy locally made high-quality steel and through this investment we are able to offer them such a product,” Mr Liddle said. 

“The flatness and consistency of stretch-levelling is particularly suited to the industry’s growing preference towards laser cutting and will be appreciated by our customers.”
