Use of low-carb syngas to reduce CO2 emission from the blast furnace
The dry reforming process allows the conversion of coke oven gas into a hot reducing gas or syngas that is injected in the blast furnace at tuyere or shaft level. The injection of this hot reducing gas into the blast furnace entails a significant reduction in coke consumption. A pilot plant has been built for industrial trials.

Innovative technology to reduce CO2 emissions from blast furnace operations
Kobe Steel, Ltd. announces that it has successfully demonstrated the technology that can reduce a significant amount of CO2 emissions from blast furnace operations, combining the direct reduction technologies of Midrex and the blast furnace operation technology in the iron and steel business. The demonstration test was conducted for one month at a large blast furnace (4,844 m³) of the Kakogawa Works in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan


VOD plant upgraded from VD plant at Çolakoğlu in Turkey
Turkish steel producer Çolakoğlu Metalurji A.S. modernized their meltshop to enable the production of special steels, like IF grades, ULC grades or stainless steels. The VOD (Vacuum Oxygen Decarburization) plant was upgraded from an existing VD (Vacuum Degassing) plant. VOD treatments allows production of special steels with very low carbon content. With a heat size of 295 metric tons, the VOD is the largest worldwide.

control - automation - quality control

The peculiarities of the AC-EAF short circuit test
The short circuit reactances of electric arc furnaces are very characteristic values which significantly influence the operational behaviour and which are determined by applying a standardized measurement method. Based on the complete electrical equivalent circuit consisting of transformer and furnace it is shown which impedances are really determined depending on the secondary side transformer connection. The results point out exemplarily which principal, i.e. unavoidable, errors are involved in the short circuit test of AC electric arc furnaces.

rolling technologies

The new benchmark heavy-plate mill project at Nucor Steel Brandenburg, USA
The new Nucor Steel Brandenburg plate mill, based on an energy-efficient EAF meltshop, will combine in a single mill the advantages of plate/Steckel rolling for medium-thin plates, as well as jumbo coiled plates with 36” (914 mm) ingot rolling. Innovative Exstream II cooling technology and EVO/6 leveling technology, supported with advanced process control, and automation systems with Industry 4.0 technologies are the key tools to match the required production flexibility with superior plate quality and energy efficiency.


Heavy-duty manipulators for forging press and ring rolling mill
XREM, a subsidiary of thyssenkrupp rothe erde, is going to produce seamlessly rolled rings for large rolling-element bearings on its new mill. The production line will include several chamber-type furnaces, an open-die forging press that will produce the blanks, and a ring-rolling mill facility incorporating several intermediate reheating furnaces for the rolling stock, and, finally, a heat treatment facility.


Performance optimization service for cold rolling mills unlocks greater levels of productivity, quality and yield
Digital solution combines real time, remote expert insight with continuous monitoring and advanced data analytics. The new ABB Ability™ Performance Optimization Service for cold rolling mills provides opportunities to reach new levels of operational performance through technology, boosting their processes and profitability.

Energy-efficient and low-GHG steel production enabled by digitalization
SULB operates an integrated steelworks in Bahrain. This steel complex covers the complete production chain from direct reduction to finish-rolled products, designed to produce a wide range of billets and heavy beam blanks. In 2020, SULB initiated the energy audit project. The objective of the project is to improve energy efficiency through increasing plant operational efficiency and making full use of secondary energy and residual heat. The long-term strategy for reducing GHG emission will also be outlined

Digital cutting solutions exploit the potential of intralogistik
To meet the increasingly more complex and individual needs of the steel processors while withstanding the high-cost pressure and international competition, new solutions and methods are needed in steel trading. Digitalization provides the right answers: It enables intelligent networking of the complete material flow in steel trading companies, making it more sustainable and efficient

In the program files and attached font imports no modified fonts may be used. All fonts and font styles used, in particular those contained in EPS files, must be listed in the order. The fonts will only be used for processing the transmitted order and will be deleted immediately afterwards.

Digital or analogue proof:
up to format DIN A4 45.00 €
up to format DIN A3 88.00 €
Pre-press proofs on request

Hourly rate for DTP work:
Recognized file errors will be processed as far as possible at the request of the customer and after consultation of the necessary work effort.
Interventions will be charged at 63 € per hour or part hour.

Other services:
All other prepress work on a time and material basis on request.

Only what is available on the data carrier can be exposed. The publisher accepts no liability for deviations in texts, illustrations and especially colours. The printing of colour advertisements without a proof is without guarantee. We assume that the files sent and handed over to us are copies
and assume no liability for their existence.
