This link here has a ton of terms related to steel.
billet = palanquilla
Strand casting
This method uses a caster machine. Molten steel is transferred from a ladle into a reservoir, called a tundish. From there, the steel flows into molds of a continuous casting machine. As the metal is water cooled, it solidifies into one long strand and then is cut to length by torches.
A semi-finished steel product that has been rolled or forged from an ingot or strand cast. It is smaller and longer than a bloom, usually a square cross section less than 36 square inches. Bars, pipes, wire and wire products are made from billets.

I think the strands in this case are barras.
