In the molding shop of Dnipro Metallurgical Plant PJSC (DMZ), businessman Alexander Yaroslavsky, a member of DCH Steel of the DCH Group, began production of deep-bottom molds.
Molds of this type are used for casting calm steel grades. Previously, the plant bought them.
The company's specialists have developed a project, manufactured technical equipment and parts for the production of deep-bottom molds.
The first of them was cast on November 20. The finished form was poured with liquid cast iron, allowed to settle for 35 hours. Then they were removed and modified for transfer to the consumer workshop.
At the beginning of December, representatives of the technical control department (QCD) and the oxygen-converter shop (BCC) performed the necessary measurements, and the new mold went to the steelmakers.
“Now we continue to cast molds, while improving the technology. We are also making technical equipment, we plan to make 4-6 sets, ”says Sergey Dedoborshch, head of the molding shop (FLC).
In the future, the workshop will produce 20 deep-bottom molds per month.
Recall that in April 2020, after a break of several years at the DMZ restored production of continuous molds for casting boiling steel. Every month FLC hands over 50 continuous molds to steelmakers.
