Miory Steel Starts Production of Tinplate at New Mill
On February 22, an electrolytic tinning unit was launched at the Miory Steel’s rolling mill in Belarus, which is the final step in tinplate production. The first batch of white tinplate was produced in the amount of 150 tonnes. All operations are simply carried out continuously in one machine at a speed of up to 520 meters per minute. Synchronization was achieved for non-stop operation of the entire line to produce high quality tinplate. Currently, Miory Stee is in the process of obtaining certification of our tinplate according to European and Russian standards, testing each roll, eliminating minor flaws and preparing to bring the unit to full production capacity, which is 150 thousand tonnes per year
On August 6, 2020, the first CR coil was successfully rolled on the new reversing cold rolling mill, supplied by SMS group, at Miory Steel. In the first stage of expansion, equipment for an annual capacity of 150,000 tonnes was implemented. It serves Miory Steel to produce tinplate grades T1, T2, T3, DR7 and DR8 as well as thin sheet grades CQ and DQ. In the course of further expansion, capacity is planned to be increased to 240,000 tonnes.
