The SBE-VARVIT Group has always pursued the vertical integration of all processes and today it is one of the few companies that controls every phase of the production process within its own plants, including the heat and chemical treatment of steel, the forging, the tools production, the heat and surface treatments of screws and nuts, the sorting and the packaging processes.
This phase is necessary to arrange for the heat treatment of the steel before forging, in order to make it more malleable. The 4 modern Ebner annealing furnaces have a capacity of 35,000 tons per year and thanks to the most modern technologies, guarantee the almost total absence of decarburization , that could jeopardize the features of the final product.
Heat treatment department
Monfalcone’s heat treatment department is equipped with 10 heat treatment lines, with a capacity ranging between 1,500 and 2,000 kg/h. All lines are managed automatically and on each of them there is a monitoring system capable of supervising all the parameters of the heat treatment, which – once the product has been treated – are stored electronically over the years to maintain full traceability.
Surface treatment department: galvanic / phosphating
Like very few other manufacturing facilities in the world, the Monfalcone plant is able to produce most of the surface coatings requested by the customer. The phosphating and galvanizing lines have a capacity of 10,000 and 15,000 tons per year respectively and are equipped to produce any type of top / coat lubricant required by customers.
