Why this is a
Masterpiece

The use of electric furnaces in steel production in Korea began in 1963 when a 15-ton furnace was first brought to the Dongkuk Steel's Busan factory. During the boom years of steel production from 1973 to 1980, smaller furnaces were replaced by 40 to 70-ton furnaces. The electric furnace exhibited in the Iron Museum is the only remaining artifact of that era and serves as an invaluable piece in the research and development of Korean steel production.

History of the Object
This electric furnace, which was made in March 1966 by Wurayama, a Japanese manufacturing company, was installed at the Dongkuk Steel Company's factory in Busan. It was in full operation and produced 1.4 million tons of steel by October 1966. This amount is equivalent to building 40 Kyungbu Railways (approximately 410 km). It was restored and exhibited in the Iron Museum in January 1998.
