15.09.2021. NLMK has commissioned a new grain-oriented electrical steel laser treatment unit with a capacity of 54,000 t/a. 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 to 10 %. This enables their 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 t/a.
