This two-part webinar presents the essentials of steel rod technology, focusing first on steel-making, then discussing rod quality issues critical to wiredrawing. Part I addresses issues associated with steel rod processing, offering a “tour” of the various operations in a steel mill. Topics include components in primary steel-making such as electric arc and basic oxygen furnaces, secondary steelmaking operations including ladle furnaces and vacuum degassing; steel solidification in continuous and ingot casting operations; and the heating, rolling and cooling of the steel in the rod rolling process.
