Steel Manufacturing

Steel Manufacturing

We can draw upon the experience of decades of successful partnerships and cooperation with steel mills, steel industry service providers and engineering companies, all over the world.

Steel is increasingly used in various industrial areas. However, at every step of the steel making process, the equipment is subjected to severe wear: abrasion, corrosion, impact, thermal fatigue, metal to metal friction, etc. This wear can be countered through maintenance and repair welding with hardfacing cored wires, strip cladding and stick electrodes. From raw material handling to sintering through continuous casting and hot or cold rolling, all areas affected by wear may be repaired using customized overlay welding solutions.

Our products always met the demands of the respective area of application and their superior quality is a main advantage. This consistently high quality of the products is not only effective for sophisticated and demanding  applications, but also for standard applications as well.

Our customers in the steelwork industry are mainly global steel concerns, ranking among the world leaders in in their field.

  • Forging press parts
  • Wear plates for feeding chutes
  • Hot and cold rollers
  • Continuous casting rollers
  • Forging dies
  • Crusher hammers
  • Blast furnace bells and hoppers

We provide iron-, nickel- and cobalt-based hardfacing products ensuring a high resistance to impact, abrasion, metal-to-metal wear and thermal fatigue.

We provide additional value by offering:

  • A network of partners able to provide superior service in on-site or off-site hardfacing
  • Expertise in overlay welding and hardfacing techniques and applications
  • Training of welders, supervisors and engineers

We manufacture welding consumables that comply with quality programs such as ISO 9001 (2008) and ASME QSC580.

Steel Structure & Construction

Steel structure is a structure which is made from an organized combination of structural steel members designed to carry loads and provide adequate rigidity.

Examples:

  • Long-span structures
  • Multi-store & high-rise buildings
  • Building of heavy duty plants
  • Tower & mast structures
  • Portal frames
  • Bridges
  • Infrastructures

Repair of cracked materials
