KEY FACTORS SPECIAL AND ALLOY STEEL

  • Mini Blast Furnace – Energy Optimizing Furnace – Ladle furnace – Vacuum degassing (EOF – LF – VD) route resulting in clean steel with low inclusion, low tramp level, close chemistry control and very low gas levels
  • Continuous casting with Automatic Mould Level Control and Electro Magnetic Stirrers using level 2 automation
  • Extensive billet conditioning facilities with automated billet grinding and magnetic particle inspection for improved surface quality.
  • Automatic wire rod mill equipped with walking hearth furnace, on line laser measurement and automatic coil handling system
  • Automatic ultrasonic bar testing equipment
  • Automatic eddy current testing machine for bright bars
  • State -of-the-art Spheroidised Annealing Furnaces ( Ebner,Radcon and Salem make)

KEY FACTORS STAINLESS STEEL
