As a pioneer of the mini mill concept, Nucor has set the standard for the energy-saving hot roll process, which now accounts for about 60% of U.S. steel production. To begin the process, high-quality scrap metal is melted into molten steel in an electric arc furnace. After the steel is tapped from the furnace to a ladle, it is delivered to the ladle metallurgy furnace, where:
Depending on your engineered bar needs, we can also employ vacuum degassing in order to:
After refining and alloying, the ladle is taken to the continuous caster, where the molten steel flows through a ceramic tube while being shrouded by argon gas to ensure cleanliness.
Electromagnetic stirring and water-cooled molds begin the solidification of the liquid steel into a billet. The billet leaves the mold and transfers through controlled cooling zones, which prevent surface cracks and ensure a flawless product.
The billet is then cut into required lengths by an automated cut-off torch and labeled. Once cooled, they’re thoroughly inspected before rolling.
The strand cast billets are then transformed using a carefully crafted mix of innovative technology, hands-on expertise and state-of-the-art equipment. They’re placed in a reheat furnace, and then descaled by high-pressure water. Next, they go through rolling passes to meet size tolerances and then are either carefully coiled or rolled to the cooling bed to be sheared or saw cut to the proper length. Quality inspection teams of metallurgical engineers are there throughout the process to ensure quality is nothing short of amazing.
When strength, size and surface are essential, cold finish processing may be required. We offer a wide variety of cold finish options, including:
For this process, hot rolled coils or bars are drawn through a forming die, which elongates the steel, decreasing diameter and increasing product length. The material is then straightened to tolerance and cut or sheared into desired length tolerances. After thorough testing, finished bars are weighed, banded and tagged to customer specification. Benefits of this process include:
This process is used to reduce or eliminate surface imperfections. The steel bars are turned, then straightened to tolerance, and cut or sheared into desired length tolerances. After thorough testing, finished bars are weighed, banded and tagged to customer specification. Benefits of this process include:
