From raw material handling to semi-finished castings, steel wire, tubes, plates and coils, Dana has a broad experience in a variety of applications related to steel production and provides components for equipment used in the transformation of steel and many other metallurgical processes.
Dana is involved in both Primary and Secondary steelmaking. In the first case our solutions are applied to the equipment needed to convert liquid iron from a blast furnace and steel scrap into steel using the technique known as basic oxygen steelmaking. This can also be achieved in an electric arc furnace by melting scrap steel or what is called direct reduced iron. In Secondary steelmaking, our solutions are related to the refinement of crude steel, which is done prior to casting into semi-finished products.
