Nickel Alloys - Manufacturing Process

To make Nickel Alloys, start with the purest available raw materials to achieve the required chemical composition. A correct chemical composition is necessary to give uniform and required properties to different alloys. The alloys are then Melted, Hot-Rolled and Processed to final sizes using state-of-the-art technology.

All processes are constantly monitored at each step using statistical process control tools to ensure the best quality of the final products. The process for making each alloy is set after a detailed exercise using concepts such as Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FEMA) and Design of Experiments (DOE)
