The project of modernization of Russian steel maker EVRAZ’s NTMK rail and beam shop was included in the number of priority investment projects in the Sverdlovsk region. After technical re-equipment, the mill will begin production of new types of rolled metal, and its capacity will increase from 800 thousand tonnes to 950 thousand tonnes of rolled metal per year. According to preliminary estimates, the volume of investments will amount to USD 210 million. The renewed mill is planned to be commissioned in 2024.The technical re-equipment involves the installation of a horizontal roller straightening machine for straightening beams and sheet piles, new cold-cutting saws for cutting rolled products, a group of stands for rolling in a four-high mode with automated adjustment of stands and profile control at the mill. Cooling on the refrigerator will be carried out without dragging, which will eliminate surface defects and dents from moving around the refrigerator. Also, the shop will be equipped with equipment for straightening rolled products before cutting and accelerated cooling of I-beams during rolling at the mill. Metal products will be packaged and weighed.All units will be equipped with electronic sensors that will allow monitoring the straightness and other parameters of rolled products over a distance of almost 10 kilometers: from placing the rail billet in the furnace to dispatching the finished rolled product.Technical re-equipment of the rail and structural shop will allow to expand the range of the mill and start production in the division of U-shaped sheet piles up to 600 mm wide, I-beams with a height of 130 to 450 mm, railway rails according to European standards (up to 25 m long), crane rails, asymmetrical L-shaped flat bulbs height from 270 mm to 600 mm.In 2010-2011, a reconstruction was carried out in the EVRAZ NTMK rail and structural shop, during which a descaling machine, a branding machine that allows identifying each rail, a non-destructive testing line, two hydraulic presses for straightening the ends of rails in two planes and drilling and cutting machines were installed, which allow to cut to custom lengths and drill holes in heat-strengthened rails.
