SIJ Metal Ravne is a specialist in tool, high-speed steels and stainless & special steels. It produces steel in an electric arc furnace, casting it into ingots and rolling or forging into quality long steel products. For the most challenging conditions we use VOD and ESR methods. Our own Steel Plant, Forging Shop, Rolling Mill and a wide range of heat treatment and machining processes allow us to produce a rich pallet of more than 200 steel grades in different dimensional shapes. With 1.050 employees and almost 90.000 ton annual production we belong globally to the group of mini mills. Therefore, we found our opportunity in the so called niche production which is characterized by specific knowledge and experience, larger flexibility and higher added value.
At the Euroguss 2020 exhibition, we will present ourselves primarily with SITHERM and SIMOLD brands.
The SITHERM brand encompasses premium-grade high-temperature and hot-work steels. The SITHERM brand steel is used for the manufacture of complex tools such as: moulds, die casting tools, high-pressure die casting tools, cores, hot cutting and extrusion tools. Steels under SITHERM brand are distinguished by extreme strength under high temperatures and high resistance to thermal fatigue. They increase mold and tool lifespan, reduce mold making and use cost and shorten production cycles. Our brand names SITHERM S140R, SITHERM S350R, SITHERM S360R and SITHERM S361R as well as high-quality production of our standard grades SITHERM 2343R, SITHERM 2344R and SITHERM 2367R that are the product of our own development are increasingly recognized and acknowledged among our customers.
The SIMOLD tool steel is meant for the manufacture of different moulds for plastics, synthetic resins and rubber moulding. The SIMOLD group of steel is heat treated to obtain the required working range of hardness which significantly shortens the time of tool production since no final heat treatment is necessary. There is also no risk of dimensional changes of tools or cracking due to heat treatment.
Almost 400 years tradition, high quality of our steels, expert skills of our employees, own development and future-oriented investments are the reasons why the company SIJ Metal Ravne is the name you can trust. SIJ Metal Ravne is a member of SIJ Group - a vertically integrated holding company, the leading steel manufacturer in Slovenia, and one of the largest stainless and special steel producers in Europe.
