At our dedicated wheels facility in Nizhny Tagil, we can produce more wheels - better and faster than ever - with our new continuous cast billet, made from high quality EVRAZ steel.
- The billet is heated in an automated LOI rotary furnace, which allows for superior temperature control on every billet.
- The billet is then processed in the forging and rolling mill - while the black wheel goes through an integrated heat treatment facility supplied by ANDRITZ MAERTZ.
- After our wheels are machined on state-of-the-art CNC lathes supplied by NSH the wheels go through our NDT-equipped inspection line to ensure they meet the toughest global wheel production standards.
