Steel plates with a
good combination of strength, toughness and weldability have been required for
hydraulic supports, with a different configuration used in mining machinery.
TMCP steel plates
were developed using
newly installed accelerated cooling equipment on the premise that gas contents,
non-metallic inclusions and segregation of the continuous casting slabs were strictly
controlled, for which the stable industrialized production stage has come true.
