Pro-Tec Coating Co.'s Continuous Annealing Line [SLIDESHOW]

Officials of Pro-Tec Coating Co. have unveiled a new production line that they say will enable their company to make lighter, stronger, more easily formable steel to help automakers meet the tougher fuel economy and safety standards they will face in coming years. Pro-Tec’s continuous annealing line is the result of a $400 million capital improvement project initiated in late 2010 by Pro-Tec’s two joint venture partners, U.S. Steel Corp. and Kobe Steel Ltd. of Japan.
