Advantages of Rachmatullin's invention are reached due to constructive solutions. He has created the tight scheme, which allows automating the whole metallurgical process and converting localized heat energy into electrical one.
"This modernization essentially increases efficiency of metal production and really reduces the cost of metal production"- Hamit Rachmatullin says-"I consulted with metallurgists from Temirtau and they proved vitality of my construction. But in order to realize these ideas I need associates and I believe we will be able to say a new word in metallurgy through our joint efforts".
