Bespoke steel solutions
Schmiedewerke Gröditz GmbH
The high-tech production plants at Schmiedewerke Gröditz are used to produce stainless steel products with outstanding precision, dimensional accuracy and special material properties. These properties include high degrees of purity, an even microstructure and resistance to wear and corrosion. We achieve these standards by making use of all the processing options steel has to offer, from open-die forged parts and ring-rolled products to processes for heat treatment, mechanical preparation and mechanical finishing.
Wide range of applications
Mastering the entire range of processing options is a must for anyone who manufactures steel products for a variety of industries – such as mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, energy mechanical engineering, the chemicals industry, oil and gas generation and vehicle construction. Our customers’ requirements are incredibly varied. Using the combined expertise and experience of our employees and GMH Gruppe, together with a wide range of services, we find solutions to suit every individual requirement. The new ideas of our employees, the precision of our work and our consistent quality management also make us a valued partner. It is thanks to these factors that we always fulfil our customers’ specifications.
A variety of processing options
The mechanical preparation and finishing of open-die forged parts and ring-rolled products is also one of Schmiedewerke Gröditz’s areas of expertise. For this process, up to 75 tonnes of ingots are smelted to the required format in our electric steel plant, after which they can be lathed, milled, drilled and sawed. We use an ESR plant with a maximum ingot weight of 84 tonnes to produce these high-quality steels. In addition to steel bars, we also manufacture forged pieces for extremely demanding applications. The equipment used for this process includes two open-die forging presses with pressing forces of 27 and 60 meganewtons respectively. Our heat treatment plants are designed to handle any technical requirement: soft annealing, normalising, oil quenching, and horizontal and vertical water quenching are all included in our range of services.
