Ovako is working closely with heat treatment companies to enable a well-functioning supply chain for high performing end products. In our relations with heat treaters we ensure to be strongest possible supply chain partner, with the ability to supply many different types of steel grades, based on three different metallurgical routes.
Ovako can meet most customer specifications, using ingot- or continuous-cast routes (bloom and billet sizes are both available) for competitive pricing at any performance level. Following earlier investments in bar peeling and heat treatment, since end of 2019 Ovako is able to supply also vacuum degassed steel from the Smedjebacken billet casting route.
Ovako can supply steel suitable for a multitude of heat-treated microstructures. Our state-of-the-art non-destructive testing ensures highest quality of delivered products. We also have various options of tailored logistics concepts and commercial systems integration.
Thanks to a closely controlled production chain from initial melt to final delivery, our products are known for their highly stable material quality with narrow process parameters. As a result, our products enable highly repeatable hardenability and improved machinability.
Our digital Heat Treatment guide even helps you save time and money by predicting how a specific steel grade composition will perform after heat treatment. Whatever your process or application, our web-based steel selectiontools let you explore hundreds of high-quality steel products to find the right match for your specific needs.

We made it! But we are still not satisfied
What a journey! It took years of hard work to make our steelmaking operations more sustainable. In 2022, we went carbon neutral in all operations. But we´re still not satisfied - our journey towards steel production without CO2 emissions continues.
