VIZ-Steel introduces digital equipment for laser welding of metal
The world's leading manufacturer of GO rolled steel products, VIZ-Steel (member of NLMK Group), has launched a new-generation automatic butt- welding machine. Digital equipment was installed on the slitting line in the finishing section of the cold rolling shop. The project's funding exceeded 90 million rubles.
The modern laser welding unit, which has replaced the overaged electric-arc mechanism, significantly surpasses its predecessor in terms of technical and operational characteristics.
The new equipment automatically performs welding of GO steel in different thickness (0.18-0.50 mm) without a downtime for re-adjustment of the equipment and always ensuring a high quality of the welding seam. The start-up of the butt-welding machine will reduce the number of technological stops of the unit.
