The Italian company OMFA INOX has been dedicated to forge stainless steel for more than 40 years. Pipe unions, clamps, and components of valves are some examples of their hot forged products made of stainless steel black bar AISI 304L and AISI 316L mainly, but also other austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels for beverage, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and automotive (1.4511 and AISI 430Nb) industries, as well as nickel alloys.
These elements are essential to guarantee joints in all kind of processes, manufactured from black bar from Roldan, S.A.mill, innovating company in the manufacturing of stainless steel long products.
The transformation of the black bar consists in cutting the piece of metal, heating it up and follows with its hot stamping, this way high mechanical properties are achieved efficiently. Once forged, the elements can be easily machined to get unique, high precision parts.
Thanks to this production system, critical zones caused by welding processes are avoided which are not suitable for high precision works.
