Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant Launches Output of Hardware for Steelmaking, Coal, Furniture and Textile IndustriesBeloretsk Metallurgical Plant (part of Mechel Group) has launched output of 10 new hardware types for the mining, cable, furniture and textile industries in 2021. Test batches of the new products have been dispatched to the plant’s clients.
Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant launched production of eight-strand wire ropes 20mm and 26mm in diameter for ferrous metallurgy facilities, to be used for cranes. The ropes have extra flexibility, and their use helps decrease friction between the outward strand wires and block surface. This decreases wear and tear of the equipment’s parts. The plant also mastered production of a new excavator rope with polymer coating and 57mm in diameter, made to European standards, which currently undergoes testing at Mechel’s Southern Kuzbass Coal Company. The polymer-coated rope has the advantage of extra service durability and less wear on an excavator’s joints.
Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant also made a batch of carbon zinc-coated wire 3.5mm in diameter to a client’s specifications, for armoring geophysical cables. The plant also produced ribbons of five different types and sizes to be used in various industries, including textile production’s weaving looms. For the furniture industry, the plant produced low-carbon wire with copper-coated surface 1.6mm in diameter, for production of furniture cramps.
