Bearings, Forging, Mechanical Engineering, Oil and Gas.
- 100MVA - 120 t UHP electric arc furnace
- RH type vacuum degassing stand
Ingot casting, square wide-end up moulds of between 5,3t and 7,5t
Bar heat treatment installations:
Quenching and tempering: austenitizing furnace for long lengths (max length for bars: 13 m) water or polymer quenching, fully automatic inspection line.
Wire rod heat treatment installations:
Annealing in a protected atmospheric furnace (spheroidizing and stress relieving): 3 continuous furnaces and one batch furnace.
In-line inspection of bars:
Ultrasonic examination, surface quality inspection by infra-red thermography, “Spectrotest”, anti-mix check, visual and dimensional checks.
Wire rod finishing
High performance wire drawing installations, producing a very large range of sizes (1 to 22 mm diameter) with various coatings. Eddy curent control during roling, 100% anti-mix chek, magnetic particle detection of coil ends. Eddy current checks on cold draw wire (rotating sensors).
