Severstal announced that it is upgrading the production capacities of flat-rolled products at the Cherepovets Steel Plant to strengthen the company's position in the engineering industry. Alexander Shevelev, CEO of Severstal, said “In accordance with the wishes of customers from the automotive industry and mechanical engineering, we have to seriously expand the technical and technological capabilities of the production of flat-rolled products. Already, we have moved to the active phase of the program for the development of wide-rolled products in demand from customers. The volume of investments in this area will be 8 billion rubles. The program includes a set of investment measures at once in several units, as a result of which we will remove the existing restrictions in the production of rolled products up to 1850 mm wide.”

Updating the transverse metal cutting units in the metal finishing shop No 2 will provide an opportunity to produce hot-rolled flat products with increased flatness and absence of internal stresses, avoiding the curvature of the blanks after thermal cutting at the client. This will allow Severstal to process the metal in accordance with the growing demands of customers in the engineering industry.

Qualitatively handle metal will help the new units rewind rolls. One of them, the APR-650, was put into operation in the second quarter of this year in the metal finishing shop No. 2. Thanks to this solution, it becomes possible to produce a high-quality product with high added value - steel suitable for laser cutting, which is widely in demand in the automotive industry. The total cost of the project, including all additional infrastructure, was about 1.2 billion rubles.
