Local Manufacturing Base For Heavy Castings And Forgings
As both basic and key element of major equipment manufacturing industry, heavy castings and forgings represents comprehensive manufacturing strength and development stage of a country and acts as the precondition of improving international competitiveness of equipment products.
TZ invested RMB 1.59 billion in 2010 to build a local manufacturing base for heavy castings and forgings in headquarters of TZ. The base, covering an area of about 101,350m², is equipped with steel making workshop, forging and heat treatment workshop, 110KW transformer substation and large key equipment such as 80t electric arc furnace, 100t LF (VOD) refining furnace, 120t LF (VD) refining furnace and 12500t hydraulic press.
The base produces steel ingot with single piece weight up to 400t, steel casting parts with single piece weight up to 500t, forging parts with single piece weight up to 240t. The annual output reaches 120,000t of steel ingot, 130,000t of heavy forgings, 15000t of heavy castings. It provides high-end castings and forgings and service for various industries including thermal power, hydropower, wind power, nuclear power, metallurgy, rail transportation, military industry so as to meet the demand of China and international market.
