Timken Latrobe Steel Completes Modernization Project

Timken Latrobe Steel has held an inaugural ceremony to launch the upgraded continuous rolling mill at its Latrobe, Pennsylvania plant. The mill enhances the company's capabilities as a leading international supplier of high quality steel bar and wire for specialty applications.

"This modernization project allows us to manufacture product to closer tolerances and improve already high quality levels," said Hans J. Sack, president - Timken Latrobe Steel. "While the design focuses on quality and flexibility, productivity has also been improved and will help us serve our customers better during this period of increased demand for the types of steel we manufacture."

The mill is equipped with electric induction and resistance heating, making it possible to roll small-size product with a high-degree of flexibility and minimal decarburization. The mill uses a three-roll configuration throughout its finishing train. This is ideal for Timken Latrobe's product program of hard-to-roll materials such as high-speed and tool steels. The configuration also allows the company to address markets in specialty metals and stainless products.
