The new Micro-mill Danieli (MI.DA®), the new steel complex based on the regional-mill/product-focused concept, at Commercial Metals Co. (CMC) Steel Arizona in Mesa, Arizona, began working in September 8, 2009. In mid 2004, Danieli approached CMC with the mill design concept that capitalizes on CMC's management and motivational philosophies and employs Danieli's endless casting rolling (ECR®) process. The mill has a design capacity of 272,000 t per year of finished product. The mill also includes a properly designed and extended multi-zone system for secondary cooling and all-in-one compact mould oscillator, the Fast-CastCube™ (FCC™). The CMC mill in Arizona is equipped with the Danieli Maintenance and Management System (DMMS) for maintenance planning, cost and performance controlling, equipment history, and inventory controlling.

The article deals with the 'rail mill,' the second site in Novokuznetsk, which is one of the largest manufacturers of a complete range of rails for the Russian and international markets. Railway, tramway and underground rails are manufactured here. The site comprises an EAF melt shop with two continuous casters, a rail and beam shop, and a long products mill. Production Evraz Consolidated West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (Evraz ZSMK) is the easternmost steel producer in Russia and the largest in the Siberian region. In 2012, consolidated Evraz ZSMK produced 7.3 million t of crude steel and 6.3 million t of rolled products. In terms of production levels, it ranks among the five biggest steel companies in Russia and the top-five global rail manufacturers. In order to improve MSR efficiency, a new release of the liquid pool control (LpC) system was developed to calculate solidification and fine-tuned on the plant based on an analysis of the position of deliberately generated internal crack.
