    Abstract

    Advanced production routes for billets, bars, and wire-rods for bearing application are discussed. The influence of modern secondary metallurgy, continuous casting, heating, rolling and heat-treatment on the critical product properties, especially non-metallic inclusions and microstructure, is presented.

    Never-ending process improvement is the key to ensuring high consistency, reliability, and profitability.

    Keywords:

    production route for bearing steel products, secondary metallurgy, continuous casting, rolling and heat-treatment, nonmetallic inclusions, microstructure
