We start with recycled material from shredded automobiles, railroad scrap, busheling and other machine shop scrap. These products are melted in our Electric Arc Furnace, which produces a Carbon Footprint that is 75% less than a traditional blast furnace. Following melt, the steel is refined, alloys are added and degassing occurs using our Vacuum Oxygen Degasser (as required).See The Next Step
Square billets are converted to round bar through a series of rolling stands. All stands, including back-to-back Kocks blocks, are remotely monitored in our operations pulpit to ensure precise sizing and quality.
