On Feb 27th, 2007, the National Science and Technology Commendation Meeting was held by the central government and the State Council in Beijing. Totally 329 achievements in science and technology were awarded at the meeting, 7 pieces are of the Top Level, including the project of Ansteel 1780 large-scale tandem cold strip rolling line designed and manufactured by CFHI. The chief engineers are Wu Shengfu, Jiang Jinshui and Song Zhiliang.
The project was one of the technological transformation projects in Ansteel and the first tandem cold rolling line designed and manufactured independently by proprietary technologies. Compared with similar lines imported from abroad, this line is equipped with better facilities while the reducing costs by nearly 1/3. The quality of its product is of the international level in terms of strip type, thickness, and surface quality, yielding rate, energy consumption and efficiency. Its successful completion indicates that China has already upheld the core technology in manufacturing tandem cold rolling mills and of procedure control
