EVRAZ NTMK Masters New Rolled Metal Product

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 10, 2019. The heavy mill department at EVRAZ Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Plant (NTMK) made its first batch of hot-rolled steel rods (diameter: 95 mm); the rods are used in machine-building, construction sector, and pipe-manufacturing industry.

According to EVRAZ Holding Ural’s Corporate Communications Center’s PR Department, the first set of steel rods (total amount: 220,000 kg) was made from carbon and alloyed steels to GOST 050-88 and GOST 4543-2016 standards and has already been shipped to customer.

The plant produced rods with the diameter of 70 mm to 150 mm before, but this is the first time NTMK has mastered a rod with a diameter of intermediate size. The plant started making 95-mm-diameter rods after an order for this specific rod type has been placed by customer. The plant developed the necessary product certificate, the operating process chart, the rolling scheme, a special set of mill stand rolls, and patterns for the new product. The heavy mill department is currently working on mastering rods with the diameter of 125 mm as well.

EVRAZ NTMK makes around 800 different varieties of rolled goods from 150 types of steel. The plant’s heavy mill department makes rolled section steel and profiled iron items, special-purpose section items, and components for ore-grinding appliances (over 50 product types all in all).
