Find below an overview of the equipment and machinery of Shaanxi North Steel Co.

Factory OverviewMachineryTesting & Inspection EquipmentLocation
North Steel Co. factory is divided into four main zones. The administrative building, stock rooms, warehouse and the production building

Office Building

Office Building Titanium
The administrative building is where the logistics, management and engineering teams are based. North Steel Co.understand the importance of the team being as close as possible to products to get a fuller appreciation and insight to what North Steel Co. do to work efficiently and effectively and continually look to improve.

Stock Rooms

titanium bar stock
The factory stock rooms are where all existing stock is managed. For each order produced an overrun of customers specification is done to ensure that there are additional products available for quick fulfilment. A full range of semi-finished products is maintained. It is important to hold a large volume of stock so to respond to existing and new customers requirements for availability and fast delivery.

Production Workshop

The warehouse is where logistics of incoming and outgoing orders are managed. A highly controlled and efficient warehouse means orders are fulfilled without error and products are delivered in required time frames.
3340170 s
At present, North Steel Co. have more than 150 employees and staff members and have 6 sets of VAR furnaces, 2,000 tons of pressing machines, annealing furnaces, turning machines, planning machines, forging hammers and ultrasonic testing equipment at the factory.

Production Machinery

Shaanxi North Steel Factory Image
North Steel offers a wide variety of services with the objective of reducing costs and cycle time for customers. North Steel Co. have an inventory of state of the art machinery capable of producing titanium products in the widest range of sizes and dimensions. A selection of machinery is introduced below.

20T Oil Hydraulic Manipulator

North Steel titanium manipulator
North Steel Co. has a number of hydraulic manipulators used to move ingots and billets into position on the hydraulic presses. The increased control over larger weights gives us the ability to work larger ingots in shorter time frames leading to greater throughput.

Titanium Plasma Welding Chamber

Titanium Plasma Welding Chamber
The Titanium Plasma Welding Chamber is use to prepare the electrode and we currently have four sets which provides flexibility in preparing not only larger volumes of ingots but also wider range of titanium materials that we can produce. Managing the complete lifecycle from sponge to mill product gives complete control over the quality of product.

Titanium VAR Furnace

Titanium VARVAR control room
Prior to start up, the electrode to be melted is loaded into the furnace. For primary reactive metals like titanium, the electrode is fabricated from compacted sponge and/or scrap, or from a hearth melt process like Plasma or Electron Beam.
VAR is the continuous remelting of a consumable electrode by means of an arc under vacuum. DC power is applied to strike an arc between the electrode and the baseplate of a copper mold contained in a water jacket.
The intense heat generated by the electric arc melts the tip of the electrode and a new ingot is progressively formed in the water-cooled mold. A high vacuum is being maintained throughout the remelting process.
