Our production facilities
A high-performance electric-steel plant
This is where we produce the steels for the casting of ingots (up to a maximum of 76 tonnes), and billets and blooms (round, rectangular, slabs and polygons). An electroslag-remelting (ESR) facility is available for the refining of our high-quality steels (maximum ingot weight: 84 tonnes).
In our steelmaking plant, we produce 300 grades of steel with more than 2,000 composition variants.
Diverse range of open-die forgings
Not only steel bar, but also forgings with complicated geometries are produced for particularly demanding applications. We have, for this purpose, among other options, two high-performance open-die forging presses: one of 27 MN and one of 60 MN of forging pressure.
Ring-rolling plant for seamless rolled rings, rail-vehicle tyres and flanges
We produce seamless-rolled rings with rectangular or contoured cross-sections, and also rail-vehicle tyres in more than 100 different grades of steel. These are used in mechanical and plant engineering, the rail rolling-stock industry, energy engineering, gearing and engine manufacturing, and also in the chemicals and petrochemicals industries. Structural steels, fine-grained structural steels, creep-resistant high-temperature steels, stainless acid and heat-resistant steels, quenching and tempering steels, tool steels, rolling-element bearing steels and special steels for the production of rail-vehicle tyres are selected for these products. Tyres for rail vehicles are a prominent feature of our product range. Our extremely good performance record has earned us "Q1 Supplier" classification from Deutsche Bahn AG – the top rating for the German rail-transport corporation's suppliers.
The flexibility that benefits our customers
We have the machinery and systems in place that enable us to turn customers’ individual wishes for machining of rolled and forged products into reality within our company. These facilities include turning, milling, drilling and sawing machines for semi- and finish machining. Our on-site heat-treatment systems cover a large range of technical specifications, from soft annealing, via normalising, up to and including oil and water quenching and tempering (horizontal / vertical).
