MMK Makes MAGSTRONG Steels

UrBC, Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk Region, February 17, 2016. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) is mastering the production MAGSTRONG steels - highly durable, wearproof steels with a wide application range.

The first batch of new steels was shipped to MMK’s Russian customers in January 2016, and more deliveries are going to be made to MMK Trading House subsidiaries to make sure there are enough articles in stock to meet demand in all the parts of Russia.

MMK-made MAGSTRONG durable, wear-resistant steels are fully comparable with their foreign counterparts. Their mechanical properties make them resistant to abrasive wear and give them impact hardness as well as excellent weldability and treatability; these steels last longer than the ones made of the earlier materials, which means longer time between repairs, less idle time, less metal consumption, and visible cost-cutting for Russian customers, as these steels are meant to serve as import substitution,’ MMK says.

Given how difficult these steels are to process and that special equipment is needed, MMK Group’s Mechanical Repairs Unit can design and make for its customers any kinds of steel goods by bending, stamping, welding, and cutting the 6mm to 40mm sheets with any plasma cutting trajectory that have been subjected to any kind of mechanical treatment.

The decision to master new types of hot-rolled, highly profitable metal goods that enjoy both domestic and international demand was made by MMK management in the middle of 2015.
