Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works (MMK) is taking part in the 22nd Archimedes Moscow International Salon of Inventions and Innovative Technologies.
This year, MMK’s innovative potential is showcased by four patented technologies in the field of cold-resistant metal rolling designed for icebreaker fleets, marine and engineering equipment used in the Arctic.
The competitive advantages of this cold-resistant metal, due to its unique combination of economical alloying to produce a strong, viscous and cold-resistant (up to -60 degrees C) metal which has isotropic properties, is fracture resistant, and has excellent weldability, meant that the product was subject to high demand both from Russian and international markets.
MMK regularly takes part in the Archimedes salon. During the 20th annual salon in 2017, MMK was awarded certificates and two gold medals for its development and implementation of the original trademark Magstrong, as well as for the development of a method for production of highly wear-resistant sheet steel. The development of a method for the production of ultra-high-strength sheet steel and of a method for the production of high-strength sheet steel were both awarded bronze medals and certificates. In addition, at the end of the 2017 Archimedes salon, MMK was awarded a certificate as a token of gratitude for having participated in the organization and holding of the event. MMK also won the certificate and regional cup for active work on the development of innovation and rationalization – including first-time implementation at a Russian metallurgical plant – with the aim of increasing the efficiency of management of rationalization, innovation and patent activity.
