Our plants

This plant has state-of-the-art technology and a production capacity of 850,000 tons per year of liquid steel and 1,200,000 metric tons per year of finished products. It is located in the Paracas - Ica desert, at Km. 241 of the Panamericana Sur. It consists of the Steel Plant, the Rolling Mill and the ACEDIM Industrialization Plant for the cutting, bending and Pre-Assembly services of rebar.

It produces:

Rebars, pre-assembled structures, wire rods, angles, U-channels, plates, tees, square bars, round bars and helical bars.

This high-speed plant is dedicated to the manufacture of steel pipes in different shapes and sections. It is located in the city of Callao.

The process consists of cutting hot rolled, cold rolled or galvanized steel coils to obtain the strips (steel strips) as raw material, then it passes through a train where it is given the pre-forming and edge welding of the strip for its union before the calibrating process which is where the tube acquires the section and commercial shape.

It produces:

Hot rolled, cold rolled and galvanized tubes in round, square and rectangular sections.

 

Manufacturing Process

Introduction

Steel is made from the fusion of different metallic charges, with content of iron, ferroalloys and carbon, which determine its molecular structure, but this process is not as simple as it seems. To get to know it, we will explain the production process of Corporación Aceros Arequipa, a Peruvian company leader in the manufacture and marketing of steel products in Peru, which has two production sites.

Fragmentation Process

A key component in the production of steel is the metallic charge. In the metallic area, the steel to be recycled is collected, according to its residual load and density.

The purchase of disused steel has been generating an important job market in our country and also contributes to caring for the environment.

The scrap metal goes through a cutting and crushing process at the Aceros Arequipa fragmentation plant. Inside the shredder, powerful hammers reduce the load to an optimal size. Then, through a conveyor belt, the fragmented scrap passes through a series of magnetic rollers that select all metal. Materials that are not selected, are diverted through another channel for their storage and alternative use in production processes.

The fragmented scrap metal is taken to the Steel Mill Plant to start steel production.
