The scrap is molten in the direct current electric arc furnace. This uses as much energy as a town of 100.000 inhabitants. The next step is the ladle furnace. Here we add alloys to produce the steel grade required.
As a preparation for the further process steps the molten steel is poured into moulds for producing beams. We use the continuous casting machine for parallel casting of 4 beams blanks. The flame cutting machine cuts the beams to lengths between 4.5 and 11 meters.
