Primary Metal and Fabricated Metal Products Manufacturing

Industries in the primary metal manufacturing sector smelt and/or refine ferrous and nonferrous metals from ore, pig, or scrap using electrometallurgical and other process metallurgical techniques. Establishments in this sector also manufacture metal alloys and superalloys by introducing other chemical elements to pure metals. The output of smelting and refining, usually in ingot form, is used in rolling, drawing, and extruding operations to make sheet, strip, bar, rod, or wire. It is also used in molten form to make castings and other basic metal products.
