First extrutec order from Step-G in Bitterfeld

With the commissioning of extrutec as supplier of a new, very powerful gas furnace system for the 50MN-12" press line by Step-G in Bitterfeld, a first order for the Bitterfeld site could be won.

In addition to a high power density, the plant is characterized by the required handling of very short billets of only 450mm length at diameter 305mm with the proven extrutec furnace drive system.

The installation of this plant will take place at the end of 2021.
