NLMK boosts premium electrical steels production capacity
by David Fleschen
NLMK has commissioned a new grain-oriented electrical steel laser treatment unit with a capacity of 54,000 tonnes per year. This is NLMK Group’s fourth line for the production of steels with advanced magnetic properties.
Adding steel surface laser treatment to the finishing stage reduces specific magnetic losses by 8-10%. This enables our customers to make energy efficient transformers in line with the toughening market requirements.
NLMK is the only grain-oriented electrical steel producer in the CIS, holding a 10% share of the global market. NLMK is currently constructing a new plant to produce grain-oriented steel in India with a capacity of 64,000 tonnes per year.
