They use microscopic methods to examine the structures and properties of metals and analyze 200 to 250 micrographs every day. Looking through the eyepieces of their microscopes, they enter a micro world in which they recognize and evaluate the shape, size and arrangement of the smallest components of wire products.
This attention to detail is necessary because voestalpine Wire Rod Austria works with over 400 types of steel, each with many different components.
The metallography department's expertise in assessing these microstructures is essential for the high quality standards of the products. Therefore, the metallographers at voestalpine Wire Rod Austria focus on both the small details and the big picture to ensure that the wire products meet the desired customer specifications.
