Natural Resources Canada’s new equipment, according to a news release, includes “features not available in any research laboratory in the world. The new mill, designed and built as a research mill and tailored to the Canmet facility, will be used to develop the latest generation of ultra-high-strength and ductility steels for automobile bodies and also support the improvement of processing capabilities for new high-strength linepipe grades.”

The equipment “will provide significant benefits to both the pipeline and car manufacturing industries and will draw innovation projects into Canada to support the future role of Canadian steel and light metals producers.”
