Our way of making steel – a customised mix of tradition and innovation
We have our own steel plant – a prerequisite for achieving the high-quality materials and flexible production that we offer. We have over 150 steel grades in our portfolio with custom adjustments on demand. A flexible size range with ingot weights from 4 to 75 tonnes and heat sizes that can be adjusted as requested. Polygonal-shaped and selected sizes in rounds dimensions. The alloy content of the steel we produce can be as high as 15%. The steel production is scrap-based and uses scrap from the immediate vicinity. This brings major environmental advantages, as only a minimum of transportation is needed. Today’s steelworkers are skilled professionals who use modern methods in a well-adapted plant.
- Arc Furnace: melting and refining, T-tapping at ~1680°C
- Ladle Furnace: T-start ~1630°C, T-end ~1660°C, deslagging on special grades
- Vacuum degassing
- Uphill teeming: 100% uphill teeming, teeming temperature: 1520-1580°C, ~40 ingot types
VIP steel – if you want to upgrade your steel quality
Our VIP steels are developed to match customers’ constant need to reduce the total cost of ownership by improving product performance and reducing product prices in comparison to comparable products available on the market.
What is VIP?
VIP is the registered trademark for our products that are VIP treated. VIP stands for Value added, Isotropy, Performance, which are the three main characteristics of our VIP steels. The majority of our products can be delivered as VIP products, with very high toughness, extra high hardenability, very high strength or a combination of all three. VIP grades are developed based on our in-house know-how and have been applied and tested in real applications, such as the bearing industry, hot-cold work tool steel and oil and gas products, since 2005.
