Castings for mechanical engineering (< 10 tons)

Castings for mechanical engineering (< 10 tons)

These products are supplied as steel and nodular iron castings that meet customer requirements with respect to a variety of different strengths and levels of ductility. We manufacture castings made of manganese steel, stainless and acid-resistant materials (duplex steels) for special applications. Products are available upon request in ready-to-install condition.

Steel and nodular iron castings

Our manufacturing capacity includes an ingot mold facility that produces series with unit weights ranging between 50 and 400 kg with high economic efficiency. Larger and heavier parts for the machine-building industry are hand-formed. The maximum unit weight is around 10 tons for steel castings and 12 tons for nodular iron castings. Nodular iron castings comply with the EN-GJS 400 15 standard.

Mechanical engineering

We use various different materials in steel castings, from non-alloyed standard grades to heat-treatable and fine-grained steels to high-alloy and high-strength special steels with specified properties. Our casting applications are found in the fields of special transport, earth-moving equipment, mining and special machinery.

Switch manufacturing

voestalpine Giesserei Traisen GmbH delivers steel frogs made of manganese steel for high-speed railway systems. We are an esteemed and competent partner, particularly in the development of prototypes.

Stainless and acid-resistant steels

The metallurgical equipment at voestalpine Giesserei Traisen GmbH allows us to produce a broad range of materials. For example, standard-to-basic-alloy castings that are fully processed and ready to install are supplied to the food, paper and chemical industries.

Shipbuilding steel plates

Shipbuilding steel plates

Our shipbuilding steels in normal and high-strength grades are used in offshore applications, platform superstructures and for special ships in the oil and gas industry.

Areas of application

Steel shipbuilding plates are used in the cabin structures of cruise ships. The especially thin but wide plates are used for such applications to offer the best processing properties such as flatness and weldability. In contrast, high-strength, thermomechanically rolled shipbuilding plates are used in offshore applications. They are used for platform superstructures or for special ships in the oil and gas industry.

Safety and quality

We guarantee the highest safety and quality standards and meet all the requirements of renowned certification companies.

Thermomechanically rolled fine-grained structural steel plates

alform®-steels are thermomechanically rolled steels with excellent weldability, toughness and cold-forming behavior.

We supply thermomechanically rolled heavy plates made of fine-grained steels with minimum yield strengths ranging from 355 to 550 MPa with exceptional toughness and the best welding and forming properties.

As a special high-quality voestalpine grade, alform® steels are found in structural steel work, bridges, pressure pipes and in vehicle and crane manufacturing.

Our thermomechanically rolled fine-grained steels are characterized by a high degree of toughness and excellent weldability. The low degree of cold cracking and high degree of toughness in the welding seam lead to a high degree of safety in welded structures.

Utilization of the higher yield strength in the high-strength fine-grained steels (alform plate 420 M, 460M, 500 M und 550 M), as opposed to the conventional S355, results in thinner cross sections that lead to cost savings through light-weight components and thus to less expensive transportation, assembly and foundations. Savings are also achieved in component manufacturing, particularly in welding.

High-strength plates

High-strength plates made of fine-grained steel have a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa, and ultra-high-strength special grades achieve yield strengths of up to 1100 MPa.

Higher stresses

Machines and buildings are becoming ever larger. When you double the values of length, width and height of a component, the weight grows by a factor of 8, while the supporting cross-sectional area only grows by a factor of 4. This doubles the stress, which is calculated with the weight divided by the cross-sectional area. High-strength steels are capable of supporting these higher stresses and simultaneously lead to decreased weight of the component.

Specific advantages

The low weight of high-strength and ultra-high-strength heavy plates saves costs: The pre-material expenses, transport charges, and the assembly and foundation costs drop drastically. Add to that the costs saved during further processing of the material. Thanks to the excellent welding properties, work can proceed quickly and efficiently. On top of this, much less filler metal is required, and the weld seam test is simplified.

Our portfolio

We deliver high-strength heavy plates as fine-grained steels with a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa and ultra-high-strength heavy plates with a minimum yield strength of 900, 960 and 1100 MPa as special voestalpine grades.

Wear-resistant plates

Our durostat® and altrix® are attractive special grades for applications that require a high level of wear resistance.

Parts used in abrasive environments wear out quickly. In order to lengthen the service life of such components, we have developed two special steel grades whose service life is significantly longer than that of conventional steels. Our online-hardened durostat® carbon steels are especially wear-resistant and demonstrate the best processing properties. Our highly wear-resistant altrix® steels include multi-layer plates for an even longer service life.
