THE COMPANY

ASTM SRL offers its capabilities and expertise to the steel producers for the supply of equipment, automation, engineering, components and services.

Going back to the moment when we decided to create ASTM SRL we asked ourselves: "What our Customers are looking for? What we can offer them to accomplish their requirements and give them effective tools for steel production?". From the beginning of our challenge we deeply figure out these questions and we decided to develop our products making them responding to the following adjectives: SIMPLE - RELIABLE – CHEAP.

ASTM SRL present itself as a cost-winner and reliable supplier of rolling rolls and rings, precision castings, automation, other consumables and spare parts at best price and shortest delivery time. We can study “tailor made” solutions for the upgrade and optimization of existing process, according to Customer needs.

ASTM SRL is located in the northern Italy, where many of the most important and innovative equipment and plant-makers are located, there we developed our engineering centre and the operative and design headquarter.

ASTM SRL expertise is given by the dated experience of our engineers and managers that operated effectively in this field for many years. The manufacturing capabilities are shown by the top quality equipment manufacturing workshops and the operating reference plants. It is widely recognized that the winning features of a modern effective steel production plant are not connected only to the quality of equipment but also to the performance and the reliability of the automation and process control system, concerning this issue ASTM SRL is able to give to its Customers the most advanced and dedicated solutions.

PRECISION CASTINGS

Precision casting is also known as the lost wax process. Intricate shapes can be made with high accuracy. In addition, metals that are hard to machine or fabricate are good candidates for this process. It can be used to make parts that cannot be produced by normal manufacturing techniques, such as turbine blades that have complex shapes, or airplane parts that have to withstand high temperatures.

Precision castings offers a combination of features which can translate to cost-saving benefits:

- DESIGN FREEDOM. Limitations to design are very few. precision casting process is capable of producing parts with complex holes, slots, lettering, bevels.

- WIDE CHOICE OF ALLOY. We can cast any different kind of ferrous air-meltable alloys (carbon and low alloy steels, tool steels, 300 and 400 series, stainless steels, precipitation hardened steels, high nickel alloys, high cobalt alloys, electrical/magnetic). Besides the steels codified by international standards, our equipments allow us to cast alloys developed on purpose for customers' special requirements.

- REDUCE PRODUCTION COSTS. Costly machining operations are reduced because of the high geometrical complexity and tight tolerances that can be reached with precision casting. In many cases the casting is ready to be assembled as it is. This can lead to a significant cost reduction.

- CLOSE TOLERANCES AND FINE DETAILS. Close dimensional tolerances are possible with precision castings. The best tolerance range is ±0,5% of nominal dimension, with a minimum of ± 0,1 mm for the dimensions less than 15 mm.

- CUT TOOLING COSTS. Our precision casting tooling is usually much less expensive than tooling for other casting methods.

- PRODUCTION VOLUMES FLEXIBILITY. Because of the flexibility of our organization, we can produce batches which varies from few pieces to hundred thousand of pieces.

AUTOMATION

SIEMENS S5 MIGRATION PROJECTS

We provide customized solutions for your migration process with particular attention to:

- minimization of process downtime/shutdown

- preservation of system requirements

- enhancement of system performance

- assessment of long lasting technologies

- optimization of existing resources in order to extend your return of investment.

Our long experience and deep knowledge of the Siemens S5 products family, both on hardware design and software programming, together with our wide awareness of new technologies and industry trends give us confidence to be able to supply the best solution for your migration.

Our scope is not limited to the migration of the PLC but extends to the upgrade of all connected devices (HMIs, PLCs, ...) in order to provide a complete solution.

Our know-how is well established in the steel industry, in particular in the long products manufacturing process (rolling mill automation).
And strong on these invaluable experience we are ready to evaluate any migration issue.

PROCESS DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM

We provide the integration into new and existing automation systems of a powerful process data acquisition system. The system is composed of a hardware/software package featuring data recording and analysis capabilities. Basically a wide set of predefined variables from configured PLCs can be continuously monitored and recorded for off-line analysis.

REVAMPING AND OPTIMIZATION OF MACHINES


CONSUMABLES AND SPARE PARTS

Wide range of consumables and spare parts such as:

- couplings and spindles

- hydraulic cylinders and valves

- blades for shears

- rolls and funnels for guides

- seals.
