Products and Solutions

Steel

We   are   graphite   specialists   and   we   distribute   graphite   electrodes   for   the   arc furnaces both EAF and LF. We also supply laser cut metal parts, 2D and 3D.

Primary Aluminium

The   application   of   Graphite   Cathode   blocks   in   the   Primary   Aluminium   Industry has   induced   us   to   develop   in   partnership   with   KANNAK   SA,   a   recognized   world leader    in    the    Aluminium    electrolysis    process    modeling,    a        new    concept    of collector   bar   made   of   copper   to   extract   current   from   the   cell.The   new   technology has   been   covered   by   international   patent.   The   installations   of   the   new   collector bar   in   some   cell   units   has   confirmed   the   potential   of   electrical   energy   reduction, the   increase   of   the   magneto-hydro-dinamic   stability   of   the   cell   and   the   potential to   increase   current   and   current   efficiency.   The   development,   the   industrialization and   the   sale   of   the   new   cathode   collector   bar   was   assigned   to   NOVALUM   SA   www.novalum.ch

Indirect and Direct Extrusion

The   knowledge   of   indirect   and   direct   extrusion   process   enables   us   to   propose complete   production   lines,   including   the   fabrication   of   the   extrusion   dies.   For   the indirect    extrusion    of    hard    aluminium    alloys,    we    have    developed    advanced thermomechanical   processing   steps   to   reduce   the   work   in   progress   times,   the direct production costs and increase the finished product yeld.

Melt Shop

Aluminium     is     molten     with     double     chamber     furnaces     equipped     with     low frequency    induction    stirrers.    The    double    chamber    furnaces    that    we    provide comply   with   the   highest   standards   of   the   Industry   as   far   as   efficiency   and   metal yields   are   concerned.   The   elimination   of   impurities   such   as   oxides   and   hydrogen is   achieved   by   a   special   positioning   of   the   degassing   units   along   the   transfer launder   and   by   the   transfer   method.   Alloyed   billets   are   usually   produced   with   Hot Top DC casters with a specific technology depending on diameter and alloy.

Hydroforming - Heatforming

The   hard   alloy   tubes   are   hydroformed   by   the   injection   of   a   high   pressure   fluid. The   hydroforming   at   room   temperature   limits   the   deformations   achievable.   To increase   the   deformation   rate   without   going   beyond   the   elongation   limits   a   hot hydroforming   process   was   developed:   the   tube   is   preheated   at   300-400°C   and hot   formed   by   injecting   a   gas   at   the   pressure   of   about   300   bar.   The   hot   deformed tube   is   not   work   hardened   and   can   be   quenched   in   air   or   water   to   achieve   the final   mechanical   properties.   The   hot   hydroforming   process   is   successfully   used   in the   automotive,   the   furniture   and   the   defense   industry.   The   patented   process   is named HEAT FORMING .

Thermal Treatments

We   sell   gas   fired   and   induction   heaters,   inline   or   stand   alone,   for   the   Aluminium and Copper billets heating. We   also   supply   solution   quench   ovens   for   the   hard   Aluminium   alloys   solution treatment capable to operate in continuous mode or as a batch chamber.

Seamless Tubes And Hollow Bars In Hard Aluminium Alloy

Seamless   tubes   and   hollow   bars   in   hard   Aluminium   alloys   can   be   produced   with low   conversion   costs   to   compete   in   price   with   the   hard   Aluminium   alloy   solid bars.   Solid   bars   may   need   to   be   drilled   to   fabricate   mechanical   components:   the drilling   operation   involves   an   additional   fabrication   cost   and   a   higher   scrap   rate as    compared    to    the    use    of    seamless    tubes    and    hollows.    The    Industry,    in particular   the   automotive   and   defence,   can   benefit   a   lot   from   using   low   cost seamless tubes and hollows: 1> Reduced weight of the structural components. 2> Reduced fabrication costs and scrap rate. 3> Higher   consistency   and   reliability   of   the   seamless   hollows   as   compared   to   the chamber welded hollows. The   new   low   cost   production   process   of   hard   Aluminium   alloy   seamless   tubes and   hollow   bars   can   open   new   horizons   for   the   entire   range   of   hard   Aluminium alloys   in   new   fields   of   applications   where   until   now   the   high   cost   has   been   the limiting   factor   to   the   obvious   technical   advantages.      Some   of   the   Aluminium   hard alloys: AA 2011, AA 2007, AA 2014, AA 2024, AA 7010, AA 7075.
