The sound of cutting steel. This machine for cutting steel bars of different profiles and dimensions is manufactured by the German company IBS. The cutting speed depends on the material's quality and dimension. This particular machine allows the cutting of between one and twenty bars at the same time.
Metal Ravne is the legal successor to Železarna Ravne. The company's range includes a steel plant programme, which starts the production of all their rolled and forged products. Due to technological modernisation over recent years, the company has all the most important machinery for the production of high-quality steel, including a 45t UHP electric arc furnace, a vacuum ladle furnace and a state-of-the-art ‘teeming pit’ for high-class conventional ingots. Their range of products includes ingots, billets with rounded edges and wide flats, with round, flat and square sections, forged bars, machined forgings, discs, bushes, etc.
