Nizhniy Tagil Iron and Steel Works installs CC machine equipment

The spokesperson for Evraz Group reports that new equipment meant for improving the performance of the plant’s fourth CC machine arrived at Nizhniy Tagil Iron and Steel Works’ LD plant. The new gas cutting unit (made in Austria) is now undergoing the pre-assembly preparations carried out by experts from the plant’s master mechanic division.

This gas-cutting unit is a crucial part of the company’s CC machine; it’s supposed to cut the steel work pieces into slabs with great precision, making it possible to get 300-millimeter slabs at 1.3 meters per minute.

The Austrian gas-cutting unit will replace the old, worn-out equipment. The assembly and installation jobs will be completed in the course of five days, so everything will probably be ready by early October. The new equipment is believed to enhance the safety characteristics of the entire CC machine as well as its productivity.

This CC machine was launched at Nizhniy Tagil Iron and Steel Works’ LD plant in July 2004.
