Steel Production and Steel Processing

Modern lightweight components and the higher stress of components require the manufacturing and processing of new steel alloys. Such treatment processes involve significant thermal sequences. Anyone controlling these sequences directly in the production process secures a decisive competitive edge. For by using thermography, you improve your quality assurance and minimize production losses during production of high-grade steels at the same time.
