TMK Approves Mechel Izhstal for Round Billets for Seamless Pipes
Mechel Group’s Izhstal plant was recognized as an approved supplier of the Pipe Metallurgical Company, one of the world leaders in the production of pipe products. The certificate of qualification issued to the plant applies to billets for the production of seamless pipes and sections for the production of drill joints.
Earlier, at the end of 2020, the plant received the status of "Excellent Supplier" from the Pervouralsk Novotrubny Plant, when Izhstal received the maximum 100 points on three out of four criteria for evaluating suppliers.
The plant has mastered the production of large-diameter rolled products after the modernization of mill 450. To meet the stringent requirements of pipe manufacturers to the quality of the metal surface, a rolling finishing line was put into operation.
For 6 months of this year, the plant delivered 4 and 5 times more metal products to TMK and PNTZ, respectively, than in the same period last year.
