Production of high sulfur forging steels at Çemtaş steel plant

Gitmez, Cenk
This study was undertaken with the objective of determining the operation practice to be followed in production of forging quality aluminum killed steels with high sulfur contents in Çemtaş Steel Plant. Nowadays, many steel grades used in the automotive industry are required both to have improved rracliining characteristics and to be fully killed, Le. deoxidized with aluminum. The product which is manufactured as hot-rolled bars in steelmaking company is shaped with forging process and then, subjected to a high degree of machining. The influences of sulfur, oxygen, aluminum and calcium on the production of this type of steel were examined in terms of castability, machinability, mechanical properties and sulfide morphology parameters.
