Ways of Improving Stainless Steel Production Indices

Possible ways are considered for improving contemporary stainless steel production indices. It is shown that the greatest improvement in stainless steel production indices may be achieved by reducing metal loss in the form of scrap and beads, and loss during metal scarfing. A reduction in losses compensating environmental damage caused by stainless steel production may also improve production indices in the near future.
