Novokramatorsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod (NKMZ) has completed the production of the second stage of the equipment complex for the 350/250 small-section wire mill. This modern, universal, highly automated mill will produce rods (Ø10-30 mm) and wire rod (Ø5.5-12 mm) in coils from various grades of steels and titanium alloys.
This is the first mill of this type that was fully designed and manufactured at NKMZ. Previously, the company mainly carried out their modernization and reconstruction.
The second stage of the mill includes equipment for charging and discharging billets from a heating furnace, transport roller tables, cooling bed, pull-over gear, power systems and automated process control systems (APCS). In the first stage, among other things, a section of a continuous group of horizontal and edging stands 350 for the production of rods, a section of a continuous group of horizontal and edging stands 250 for the production of wire rod, a section for winding wire rod were manufactured.
NKMZ carries out a complete supply of the mill, which, together with engineering and equipment, includes rolling technology and a software product. It should be noted that the mill made by NKMZ provides rolling of a wide range of steel grades and alloys. Due to the features of the technical process, they require different amounts of force and rolling temperature, different reduction (degree of metal deformation), and, as a rule, are not rolled on the same mill. NKMZ employees have created a universal mill that is capable to do it.
