Cast slabs are utilized in both hot and cold rolling operations into coil, sheet and plate or used in the forging industry
How using Outokumpu slab reduces yield loss in forging
Outokumpu’s 300 mm thick slab replaces ingots in certain applications and cuts precise shapes to minimize wastage (nesting). You have the possibility to optimize the length of the slab to your needs. Additionally, Outokumpu slab reduces yield loss in forging results and has a > 10% yield benefit.
