Uralelectromed JSC (an enterprise of the UMMC metallurgical complex) supplied 27.5 tons of high-strength steel grating to the Sredneuralskiy copper-smelting plant (SUMZ is an enterprise of the UMMC metallurgical complex). It was one of the most difficult orders for the steelworkers, which they completed in two weeks. - We received an order for the first time, where it was required to produce 90 gratings with a load-bearing strip of 80 x 8 millimeters (height, thickness). I had to urgently make an additional device in the form of a comb, repeating the size of the main matrix. This helped us avoid deformation of the bearing strips during the welding process. In addition, we have worked out new modes. As a result, it was possible to qualitatively perform 90 grids weighing 305 kg each, - said the head of PSK Vitaly Kotlov about the batch production process. charges did not accumulate between the tracks. Since the start of the welded grating line in 2020, more than 400 tons of products have been produced. The welded grating line of JSC Uralelectromed automatically welds metal bars and strips. The grating parameters are entered via the touch panel. Metal elements (strips and rods) are connected to each other in a few seconds by resistance welding. The machine allows the production of flooring of various standard sizes - up to 9 meters in length and up to 1.2 meters in width. The final technological stage in the manufacture of flooring is hot-dip galvanizing. Structures are dipped in a molten zinc bath to prevent corrosion. Dump trucks can easily move on such a product. Note that the company provides customers with a full cycle of services - from the manufacture of flooring to anti-corrosion protection of products by hot-dip galvanizing or painting. Metal grating is used in industrial premises, energy, construction, oil and gas industry, shipbuilding, agriculture, automotive industry, urban facilities and even shopping centers.
