Advances in the Production of Bearing Steels by Modern Secondary Metallurgy and Continuous Casting


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.
