Our chain of production
Hot-rolled raw material
: The production process starts with slitting hot rolled coils, which weigh approximately 12 ton, in predetermined widths depending on the demands of the end user.
Material for steel strap is transported to one of our steel strap lines where it will be slit, de-burred and then lacquered or blue annealed. After the surface treatment, the material is re-wound on to either ribbon wound-, oscillated-, or jumbo-coils.
Cold rolled steel strip
Cold rolled steel is processed into a number of different qualities. After pre-rolling, it is possible to anneal, slit, trim roll or roll the edges of the material. It is common to combine the different processes to achieve the mechanical properties and other specifications requested by the customer.
Cable steel strip
This product is cold rolled and slit before the hot dip galvanizing process. When galvanized – the strips are pulled through a continuous annealing furnace, and then passes through the zinc bath. The amount of zinc on the strips is controlled by air knives and line speed. The material is wound on to coils with different inner-and outer diameters.
Hot dip galvanized steel strip
After slitting the raw material, the edges are rolled to give a smooth and round shape. The process also includes a slight trim roll to ensure thickness tolerance. After rolling, the material is transported to the galvanizing line dedicated for galvanizing material with a thickness of 2-6 mm. The material is cleaned, pre-heated and hot dip galvanized in a continuous process. It is then rewound to either ribbon-, jumbo-, or super-jumbo coils.
