More processing in less time. The quality of the product we supply goes hand in hand with meeting delivery deadlines. We strive to achieve this by optimizing process times, which is a competitive advantage for you too. We therefore perform several processes at the same time: for example, non-destructive controls and heat treatments are carried out in the rolling mill while the product is being rolled. We also focus on material research for new applications, such as the family of bainitic steels that has been developed by the ABS Centre Métallurgique ACM labs in Metz, France. These steels are light and have high mechanical characteristics.
Many sections, a vast range. Your satisfaction motivates us to research, expand the range and enhance the product. As we are well aware that each component in complex applications requires specific materials, we have developed a range of blooms with sections ranging from a minimum of 210 mm to a record 850 mm. Variety and flexibility also characterize the rolled products, produced in round or square sections of 300 - 500 mm, that are comparable to forged products in terms of internal characteristics.
The one-stop-shop. Your product, sector and market require precise solutions. You can find them in our range, which is one of the largest and most competitive in Europe and which makes us a unique partner who is able to respond to different requirements. The ABS one-stop-shop for the mechanical industry considers various processes and supplies per quality, size and quantities, ranging from small gears to large complex works. This selection has been expanded to include steels that are peeled and ground by our specialized cold processing centres.
The utmost flexibility with respect to the management of the rolling diameters and the possibility of modelling the product according to the customer's most sophisticated requirements, in terms of mechanical characteristics and more, make ABS a unique reference point for quality and service in the wire rod sector.
