Primetals Technologies receives Plant Acceptance for the rail and section mill supplied to ARBZ


Primetals Technologies was granted the Plant Acceptance Certificate for the rail and section mill

supplied to Aktobe Rail and Section Works LLP (ARBZ), Kazakhstan. The new rolling mill was installed

in the town of Aktobe under the auspices of Kazakhstan Temir Zholy JSC, the national railway company,

and is the first and only rail manufacturing plant in Kazakhstan. In order to produce rails with a high

contact fatigue and wearing resistance, the rolling mill was equipped with the Injector Dual-phase Rail

Hardening (Idrha+) system. This system is the most advanced technology available for inline hardening

of heavy-duty rails with lengths up to 120 m. The rails produced are pre-certified per GOST standard and,

beside saturating the domestic market, are exported to the Russian Federation and CIS countries
