KARDEMİR, which has increased its existing product range for the Automotive, Defense, Machinery Manufacturing and Railway Sectors by developing new products with high added value supplied by import, also started to produce flat steel with narrow platina. In addition to the railway rail, it has successfully completed the production of flat steel trials in narrow platina form, which has been continuing for some time at the Rail Profile facilities where different products such as IPE, NPI, NPU, HEA and HEB types are produced, 205-405mm width, 20-80 mm. It launched its narrow platina products in thicknesses and up to 72 m of paint, in 6 and 12 m lengths, in line with customer demands.
The first step to switch to flat product
Railway rails and wheels, was considered heavy sections and thick coil production in Turkey's Kardemir plate the only manufacturer to be the first step to begin the transition to the production of flat products. It has been announced that our company, which aims to produce 2020 tons in 25.000 for platina, which is mainly used in machinery manufacturing and molding sectors, continues its trial production in platina production up to 520 mm width.
“This Production Is An Important Milestone”

This year, we will be on the market with a production of 25.000 tons. Our goal in a short time is to reach 100.000 tons of production. Studies continue to increase the width in this area to 520 mm. 45CrMo42 quality has also been added to our existing medium carbon steel quality (C4) product group. "Our efforts to develop new product qualities with high added value will continue without stopping."
