Electric Arc Furnace
Steel Plantech’s electric furnaces for steelmaking are core products succeeded from JFE Engineering (formerly NKK).
Its abundant experience as a steelmaker (or in other words, a user) in addition to technical know-how gleaned from experience in the design and engineering of electric furnaces for steelmaking, accumulated since 1968, enabled the provision not only of electric arc furnaces and auxiliary equipment, but also a wide range of metallurgical and operational technology.
