Thermal Cutting Guideline for JFE Steel’s Abrasion-resistant Steel Plate EVERHARD
Now Available in Four Languages

JFE Steel Corporation announces the release of the fourth booklet “Thermal Cutting” in its Guidelines for Fabrication: JFE’s Abrasion-resistant Steel Plate EVERHARD. Like the three existing booklets respectively covering Welding, Bending and Machining, this new booklet is available from JFE’s homepage in Japanese, English, Chinese and Spanish.

JFE’s Abrasion-resistant Steel Plate EVERHARD is used widely around the world as an important material for the production of construction and mining equipment. JFE Steel publishes these guidelines to ensure the safe and effective use of EVERHARD by customers in Japan and around the world, especially in places where demand for abrasion-resistant steel is high, including India, China and Latin America. They are easy to understand even for customers using EVERHARD for the first time.

The booklet “Thermal Cutting” covers cutting conditions that customers frequently ask about, such as preheating temperature or cutting speed, as well as details about heat-affected zone by thermal-cutting, cold cracking and so on.

The existing booklets cover subjects such as optimal welding conditions (preheating temperature and welding consumables), key checkpoints when conducting bends, recommended processing conditions for drilling and milling, and much more.

JFE Steel will continue to enrich services for customers further more aiming at promoting abrasion-resistant steel plate EVERHARD as well as the JFE brand.
