Silicon steel

Driving the future

The production of new high performance silicon steel grades needed by the electric car and energy industries presents a challenge to steelmakers. You would need advanced technologies to produce high flux density materials with minimal core losses at high frequencies. With our proprietary technologies and expertise, we are ready to help you enter this competitive market and build a reputation for quality.


Our NeoKoil® silicon processing lines are dedicated for the production of non-grain oriented (NGO) and grain oriented (GO and HiB) grades for high-end applications:

  • Annealing & pickling lines (APL)
  • Annealing & coating lines (ACL)
  • Decarburizing & coating lines (DCL)
  • Flattening & coating lines (FCL) 

Record performances:

  • Strip temperature: up to 1,100 °C
  • Fast heating: up to 400 °C/s
  • Process atmosphere: dry or wet from 0 to 95% H2

New steel grades - new markets
