Argus reported that AK Steel will idle its electric arc furnace flat-rolled stainless steel mill in Mansfield in Ohio on 4 April, the latest casualty of coronavirus-related auto industry shutdowns. Cleveland-Cliffs told Argus that Mansfield operations will conform with the needs of our automotive customers.

The mill operates two EAFs and a thin slab continuous caster along with a hot rolling mill to produce ferritic (400 series) and martenistic grades of stainless steel commonly used in automotive applications.

The Mansfield mill's slab caster has a production capacity of 751,000 short tons (st)/yr, while its hot strip mill has a capacity of 551,000 st/yr, according to data from the Association for Iron and Steel Technology.
