Energosteel is glad to find a partner of the raw materials supply for the production of steel grinding balls! In September, the Energosteel delegation visited the production facilities of a metallurgical plant specializing in the production of high quality round steel bars. The plant produces round bars from billet square of its own production. Due to this factor, prices for long products from this manufacturer are very competitive in the market.
The metallurgical enterprise produces long products using the continuously cast billets technology. Due to the continuously casting and crystallization, a complete uniformity of the structure of the bar along its entire length is achieved. During crystallization, the formed metal bar is constantly moving up and down relative to the mold by means of small cylinders located in the stream. This reduces the number of cracks (defects). A strong electromagnetic field is created around each stream, which allows the formation of the proper crystal structure of the billet. A round bars are rolled from such a square billet with an already homogeneous and initially structure. Also, in the case of production technology by continuous casting, metal losses for trimming the ends of bars are sharply reduced (saving 25% of metal).
Based on this, we can conclude that this production method is not only cost-effective, but also effective for the production of high quality bars, the amount of rejects is reduced, which minimizes the formation of defects in the production of our products – steel grinding balls. It is a priority for us that this manufacturer can exclusively fulfill all of our billets requirements.
During the meeting with representatives of the plant, we outlined the stages of development of further cooperation. Energosteel expresses its gratitude to the representatives of the plant for the warm welcome and warm atmosphere of negotiations. We sincerely hope that the agreements reached during the negotiations will become the basis for fruitful and mutually beneficial cooperation.
