- Increased safety through automatic vessel exchange
- Improves operating costs
- Dedusting system with provisions for heat recovery system reduces environmental impacts
Unforeseen bearing failures in production-critical machines and equipment can prove extremely costly in replacement parts, labour and downtime, all of which have a negative impact on bottom-line profitability. This problem becomes worse in contaminated environments, such as those prevalent in steel manufacturing, which is why increasing numbers of steel plants are turning to the advantages offered by NSK’s long-life Super-TF spherical roller bearings. Manufactured from a specially developed, proprietary material, these bearings are able to increase service life and uptime significantly.
Steel company SSAB and automotive safety supplier Autoliv have initiated a collaboration to research and develop fossil-free steel components for automotive safety products, such as airbags and seatbelts.
Dillinger is rigorously pursuing its strategic path toward achieving the climate targets set in Europe. With its innovative products, the Saarland-based steel company is contributing in important ways to the sustainable generation of renewable energies. To advance the development strategy in this market and strengthen the company’s position, the Dillinger Supervisory Board has approved the Board of Management’s EUR 56.5-million investment proposal to expand production of super heavy plate at Dillinger (Dillingen) as well as production of wind tower foundations, known as monopiles, at the Dillinger subsidiary Steelwind Nordenham.
The value of the Scottish Steel sector in relation to the rest of the world and also the UK specifically has been analysed by researchers from WMG, University of Warwick, who have found investment could be the key to reviving the industry into a thriving industry.
Today, the transportation sector accounts for the major share of global greenhouse emissions, contributing around 25 percent. Along with other energy-intensive industries, including the metalworking industry, it faces ever-stricter decarbonization targets in order to be more climate-friendly and to reduce the use of non-renewable resources.
Creos Deutschland, Encevo, GazelEnergie, GRTgaz, H2V, Hydrogène de France, SHS - StahlHolding-Saar GmbH and Steag GmbH have constituted themselves as the European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) "Grande Region Hydrogen".
Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have uncovered a striking new behavior of the 'strange metal' state of high temperature superconductors. The discovery represents an important piece of the puzzle for understanding these materials, and the findings have been published in the highly prestigious journal Science.
