Steel Mills

High-wear steel mill applications demand solutions from MetalTek

Heat-resistant alloys, corrosion-resistant alloys, the capability to produce large-size rolls, and a variety of shaft and trunnion designs contribute to MetalTek’s leading position as a provider of castings for steelworking markets.  Our ability to manufacture and fabricate all components in house allows us to provide complete assemblies, saving customers time and money. 

MetalTek’s proprietary high-wear alloy Bearium B-10 operates with very low levels of lubrication, resulting in significantly less wear than other alloys.  Steel mill customers take advantage of the consistency and homogeneous qualities of MetalTek’s centrifugal castings for steel mill rolls, which outperform other manufacturing methods.
