Ovako is working closely with forgers to enable a well-functioning supply chain for high performing end products. In our relations with forging companies, we ensure to be the strongest possible supply chain partner, with the ability to supply many different types of steel grades, based on three different metallurgical routes.

We 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, from end of 2019 Ovako will be able to supply also vacuum degassed steel from the Smedjebacken route.

Ovako can supply steel heat treated for a multitude of microstructures. We can supply precision-rolled surface finishing or bright bar with many levels of surface tolerances from machining or grinding. 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 stable forming processes, repeatable hardenability and improved machinability.
