UrBC, Magnitogorsk, November 5, 2019. MMK Group’s Magnitogorsky Zavod Prokatnyh Valkov launched a highly productive NC roll-turning machine for treatment of rolls meant for sheet-rolling mills, section rolling mills, and rail and structural steel mills, MMK’s Information & PR Department reports.

‘The new roll-turning machine meets all the modern machine-building standards, ensures high precision, and is structurally stable, reliable, and long-lasting. Now that the machine has been launched, the plant is prepared to start making rolls with the diameter of more than 1,000 mm,’ MMK says.

The new equipment is suitable for treatment of rolls made from heavy-duty cast iron, high-speed tool steels, and hypereutectoid steels.

In terms of tech parameters, the unit 1K675.01FZ is currently unique to the Southern Urals’ metallurgical industry. The rolls can be as big as 1,850 mm; the machine’s load capacity is as much as 70,000 kg. The distance between centers comes to 8,000 mm. The rolls get treated with two supports simultaneously, and the entire process runs on a programmed numerical control system. There’s also a range of ragging patterns to choose from.

Magnitogorsky Zavod Prokatnyh Valkov is one of Russia’s largest manufacturers of rotational- casting sheet and grooved rolls. The company supplies highly-alloyed cast-iron sheet rolls and grooved rolls to metallurgical plants in Russia and abroad. The plant is partners with the world’s leading steel-makers, including the European giants Thyssenkrupp and ArcelorMittal, India’s Tata Steel and Bhushan, the U.S.-based Nucor Corporation, and Indonesia’s Krakatau-Steel and Garuda. Magnitogorsky Zavod Prokatnyh Valkov is the No.1 supplier for Russia’s largest metallurgical companies MMK, NLMK, Severstal, and EVRAZ NTMK. The plant keeps working on improving product quality, modernization, and production process optimization to provide the metallurgical industry with competitive products that meet all the rolling-mill sector’s standards.
