Casting solutions

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.

Advantages include:

  • 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
