Forging: Our state-of-the-art forging methods lead to crane components that come with a high safety factor, excellent fatigue rating, lower maintenance costs and a longer lifetime. Irizar Forge prodcution methods preserve the metal´s molecular grain structure, which leads to superior mechanical values. Depending on project requirements, we use:
Heat treatment: such as quenching and tempering, normalization or annealization to achieve optiomal physical and mechanical properties (toughness, strength, elasticity).
Surface treatments: such as grinding and shot-blasting to remove any surface, defects that could impact mechanical and physical performance,. This results in a superior fatigue life.
Machining: of components to specification.
Assembly: of different components into the whole product.
Specialized coatings: to withstand extreme weather, temperature, chemicals, chlorine, and salt or subsea conditions. Irizar Forge also provides guidance on how to protect products in these harsh environments
