Bright steel production with high dimensional accuracy and a clean surface
Benefit from our experience accumulated over decades and the continuous further development of our bright steel technologies and systems engineering, providing you with the best conditions to meet the ambitious requirements of your customers.
If your needs in terms of surface quality, freedom from defects and dimensional accuracy go beyond the possibilities of rolled steel, our bright steel is the right product for you. We are your partner of choice for applications that require combinations of heat treatment with close tolerances, precise bright steel production, the production of dimensionally accurate short sections, end machining and straight turning.
Peeling and burnishing for the best surface quality and straightness
We produce new bar surfaces free from technical defects, scale and surface decarburisation through the mechanical processing of rolled products with peeling using hard metal indexable inserts.
Subsequent burnishing with convex and concave rollers improves the straightness of the bars and produces lower roughness values. Talk to us if your bright steel requirements go beyond the properties according to the EN 10277 standard.
Non-destructive inline testing for the highest reliability
We use highly modern testing lines to monitor the quality of our bright steel production. This includes verifying the surface quality, freedom from internal and near-surface defects and the identity of the material. Crack testing and material identification are based on the eddy current method, testing for internal defects is based on ultrasound.
Even more accurate with grinding
We produce the tightest tolerances of our bright steel products on our centreless cylindrical grinding machines. Tolerances up to < h6 are possible on the ground bar. Our grinding technology perfectly complements our surface hardening facilities. Shafts for linear technology applications are therefore part of our product portfolio.
