LF metallurgy. This means professional commitment and motivation towards quality and customer service. Increased assistance and service and quick reaction to Customer needs is a must. A well-equipped technical lab enables for process and product control and development. Team work. in order to better respond to -and even anticipate. Such procedures are continuously upgraded. melting. rolling and inspection) to be continuously kept under control. The above process organization has allowed us to reach the prescribed operative and quality assurance standards. Housekeeping helps to promote a safe working environment. prior to dispatching.the most demanding customer needs. the material undergoes testing to verify and certify that required properties are met. . Continuous process control aims at preventing defects and taking prompt corrective actions if a problem should arise. At the end of the production cycle. process costs and yield are continuously and thoroughly monitored in order to lead employees to focus on the quality of their jobs. The evaluation of customer needs and the selection of the most suitable process routes for the order are part of a practice which identifies the material route in the progressive phases (scrap blending.
