Investment increases production of profiles

Sandvik Coromant UK : 09 April, 2002  (Company News)
Recent investment at Sandvik Espa
The investment, valued in excess of 850,000 Euros, has increased the finishing capacity for profiles which are cold rolled from round wire at the SESA plant.

Stainless steel profiles represent a niche market in which Sandvik Steel has been particularly successful. As well as watch bracelets and surgical implants, a major market exists with manufacturers of kitchenware in the form of saucepan handles, rotary grill skewers and food processor knives. Other key applications are reinforcements for aluminium windows and conveyors in pulp and paper mills.

Profiles are an effective and potentially cost saving alternative to round and flat wire. Round wire, in particular, is often used as a starting material to manufacture profiled components. Modern production methods and specially designed rolls enable Sandvik Española to produce close tolerance, cold rolled profiles with good surface quality and optimum material properties at near nett sizes. The SESA factory has now produced more than 1000 different profiles.

Available in sizes up to 23 mm wide and 7 mm thick and in a wide range of austenitic stainless steels and special alloys, Sandvik profiles are supplied hard rolled or annealed, in a cold rolled bright finish and delivered in coils, spools or straight lengths.
