Sheffield Forgemasters International has pioneered the use of castings in the offshore industry. The flexibility in shape and section thickness that a casting offers can bring engineering solutions to complex assemblies and lift arrangements.
- Flexibility and complexity of form
- Smooth section changes produce low stress concentrations
- Enhanced fatigue life
- Favourable weld locations away from node connections
- Reduced and easier in-service inspection
- Strength, toughness and weldability
