Steel ingots

Ingot Product Availability

Research into ingot product development has resulted in the availability of a wide range of ingot sizes. Particular emphasis has been given to long round ingot development for rolled rings, shorter length sizes suitable for seamless tube extrusion and a range of octagonal and multi-fluted forging ingots to meet the needs of the open die forging market.

Typical materials produced include Engineering Carbon, Alloy and Stainless Steel in a variety of grades. The range of ingots available vary in weight from 1.5 tonnes to 285 tonnes in octagonal, multifluted and round sections.
