Abstract

The preparation of the charge for steelmaking furnaces is a key area from the point of view of the quality of the produced steel. One of the most important components of the charge is the treated steel scrap (in general, you can say metal waste). Technologies such as shearing, crushing and briquetting are currently used to treat steel scrap. Among the most widespread and, at the same time, the most economical technologies for the treatment of steel scrap is the baling technology, which can be described as the pressing of steel scrap, which takes place in the direction of three axes at most and that axes are perpendicular to each other. This technology is realized by means of so-called baling presses. The design of the individual structural nodes of the baling press itself has a significant influence on the correct way of charge adjusting when using baling technology. The presented article will inform readers about the possibilities of determining selected design parameters of the baling press.
