Research & Development activities

Research & Development R&D Department rapresents a fundamental instrument for M&M Forgings and an important competitive advantage that testifies how the company strives to achieve an avant-garde position in the development of new technologies and products, confirming it commitment to strategic growth.

All metallurgical know-how acquired allows direct involvement of clients in the projects, the development of metallurgical processes and numerical simulations of processes.

M&M Forgings autonomously and, when necessary, with the collaboration of Dr. Mapelli (Lecturer in metallurgy and iron and steel works at the Milan Polytechnic), develops customised solutions, training and refreshers courses for operators, management and coordination of qualifications, research and development activities on new production processes.

They also conduct studies on the use and improvement of materials, including: carbon steels, steels for use at high temperatures, austenite stainless steels, inconel, aluminium and many other steel alloys and forging materials.

Thanks to continuous research activities by the R&D department, the company can present targeted, efficient and functional solutions for every single customer.

Some of the most significant projects include:

chemical and thermal homogenisation of ingots;

optimisation of ingot teeming;

development of duplex steel transparency processes;

optimisation of heat treatment cycles for steels.
