Plant and Equipment for Processing Iron, Steel and Non-ferros Metal Production
Metal processing is a subdivision of manufacturing technology. It is operated in a wide variety of sectors from industry and trade to tool and mould making, vehicle construction, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding and bridge building. Plants and machines for this industry distinguish between iron, steel and non-ferrous metal production.
More than ever before, efficient energy consumption with flexible raw material use is decisive for the economic processing of all metals. Just as important are process speed and processing quality. All these factors together are a prerequisite for suppliers and users to be able to produce effectively and competitively in the face of increasing quality demands. To achieve this goal, systems with a long service life and maintenance-friendly design are required.
The following industries, among others, require products for iron, steel and non-ferrous metal production:
