Quality Management reaching the client
Planned quality in all stages of production and finishing guarantees products of high value.
Supervisory support during production
By means of a number of tests integrated into the production process, the quality of each roll in the Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen plant is precisely monitored. The most important aspects of inspection and checking are melting, casting, metallography, heat treatment, ultra-sonic testing, mechanical processing and final inspection.
Research and Development
Our team of engineers from a great variety of specialist areas work together with our clients on specific suggestions for solutions. This also extends as far as publicly subsidised, cross-border cooperation projects and research projects at universities.
The worldwide network of our distribution organization ensures that we receive all available data about the usage of our rolls. Results from analyses, combined with reports from the experiences made at the rolling mills, lead to an optimization of the rolls in operation.
Events organized by national and international trade associations and clients serve as a platform for presenting innovations and developments. Based on this, client-specific seminars and training programmes are offered.
The Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen was certified according to ISO 9001 and 9002 for the first time in 1998, although today only the ISO 9001 standard as a summary of the ISO 9001, 9002 and 9003 standards is common and therefore valid.
In addition, the Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen was certified according to ISO 14001 since 2003.
