The ingots cast by Rubiera Special Steel SpA are forged for pressure vessel manufacturing.
Many of SFIL's large-dimension products are cast in the engineering group's steel foundry.
Pouring it On
Recently, SFIL cast over 600 metric tons of steel in one pour, for a series of castings to be supplied to SMS Meer.
Pouring large ingots requires suitably sized casting molds.
Center of Activity
In one large-scale program, SFIL successfully cast a super-sized hollow ingot.
Handling the Heat
Forging large ingots also requires expertise in heating and handling such products.
Size that Counts
SFIL forges ingots weighing up to 275 mt.
Forgings are produced for numerous critical applications in engineered structures, particularly in nuclear power and oil-and-gas industries.
Forged mill rolls represent an important production specialty for SFIL.
To Russia, With Love
SFIL recently forged a series of steel mill rolls for the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works, a Severstal holding.
In addition to forging, SFIL machines oversized parts — as for example this hydraulic press component.
