The groundbreaking ceremony for the “New Heat Treatment Line” project took place in the presence of Saxony-Anhalt’s Minister President Dr. Reiner Haseloff and Prof. Dr. Armin Willingmann, Minister for Economic Affairs, on September 19 2018. This is the largest single investment in the history of Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH (ILG), a subsidiary of Salzgitter AG. The new heat treatment line is the main project component through which Salzgitter AG concentrates the heavy plate activities of ILG and positions the company securely for future requirements. It comprises two roller-hearth furnaces, a MultiFlex-Quench®, a leveling machine, a blasting facility, a preservation line and a water treatment system. Implementation has been scheduled for the spring of 2020. More than 200,000 tons of heavy plate can be annealed and subsequently processed further in the new plant that has been designed for plate in thicknesses between 5 and 175 millimeters, with widths of 600 to 3,500 millimeters. In lengths of between 4 and 24 meters, the plate has a maximum weight of 28 tons. The energy-efficient heat treatment line fulfills the highest standards placed on quality and energy efficiency. With its extremely flexible cooling-down strategies, the integrated MultiFlex-Quench® enables the production of a broad product portfolio, including particularly sophisticated heavy plate grades. The materials spectrum comprises ultra strength carbon steels, wear resistant steels, steels alloyed with nickel, steels for the offshore construction of wind turbines, steel grades for pressure vessel construction, as well as case-hardened, quenched and tempered steels, to name a few.

Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH (ILG) is a subsidiary of Salzgitter AG, one of Europe’s leading steel technology corporations. With a workforce of around 750 employees, ILG produces approximately 700,000 tons of heavy plate a year in 350 steel grades for a wide variety of application areas. The company ranks among Europe’s leading heavy plate manufacturers.
