Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works has decided to modernize its continuous casting machine No. 6 and the 5000 plate mill in order to start producing hot-rolled metal of the 350 mm thick slab.
The project, including modification, assembly and putting into operation, is expected to be finished this year.
At present the CCM No. 6 produces 190, 250 and 300 mm thick slabs. When the thickness of the slab is increased to 350 mm, its width will not change – 2700 mm. (Ukrainian metal)
