Tradition meets innovation.

From advisory service to assembly. Tradition meets innovation. We focus on our knowledge and experience that ensure advantages and added values for you that ensure the prevention of failures of your high-grade steel components.

In our in-house R+D department, we deal with new and further developments of materials as well as process optimizations. All to be able to offer best solutions for your specific requirements. In our certified materials laboratory, we e.g. carry out metallurgical examinations, for finding the causes of damages and, in the best case, also provide recommendations for their prevention.

S+C offers a large range of services. In addition to our in-house machining services such as turning, milling, drilling and deep hole drilling, we also offer services of our large network of external partners who provide innovative solutions such as waterjet cutting, laser and electron beam welding, ...). We weld and assemble your components and offer an exceptional level of expertise in joint welding. Heat treatment to achieve required material properties is also part of our service.

By the way: S+C welders are also certified according to DIN EN 9606-4 for welding of nickel alloys. You'll find our broad range of services below.

Application consulting.

Individually tailored solutions.

Our many years of experience in the field of industrial furnaces have seen us develop an extensive range of materials. This enables us to offer you at least one optimum solution for your actual plant and production situation. In case the optimum material should not be in our range, we will jointly consider what alternatives are available for you.

  • Many years of experience
  • In-house developed materials
  • Optimum solutions

Research and development.

Hotbed for material innovations.

The task of our R+D department is to generate added values around materials, designs and applications that will secure you advantages. S+C operates the most modern certified materials laboratory in the industry and invests heavily in innovative materials, technologies and process optimizations. We want you to be at the cutting edge of technology at all times and to break new ground together with us.

  • Generating added value
  • Securing advantages
  • Breaking new ground

Mechanical processing.

A wide range of production methods.

Our machining spectrum includes all major machining methods such as turning, milling, drilling and deep-hole drilling in a particularly wide range of dimensions. As a system supplier, we also undertake machining methods to be performed externally, such as grinding, honing, gear cutting, etc, if required.

  • All important machining operations
  • Also some machining operations to be carried out externally

Failure investigation.

Clarification of the causes of the failure.

The experience of our specialists, as well as the excellent equipment of the company's own materials testing laboratory, enables us to actively participate in the clarification of the causes of the failure. Our analyses can reveal much more than the exact cause of the damage. You may also receive concrete suggestions as to how similar problems can be avoided in future, e.g. by using a different material, adapting your process conditions or by using a modied design.

  • Documentation of the damage pattern
  • Determination of the chemical analysis
  • Metallography / microstructure examinations
  • Fracture surface examinations e.g. by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM)
  • Determination of the mechanical values
  • Corrosion tests
  • Clarification of the cause of damage e.g. by reconstruction of the damage sequence
  • Proposals for damage preventive heat treatment

Heat treatment.

Optimal parameters.

For the adjustment of required material properties, heat treatment is often obligatory or advisable. The specific setting of the optimum parameters is of great importance, since the performance behavior of the components is decisively influenced by them. S+C has a state-of-the-art equipment available for this purpose.

  • Annealing
  • Cold and hot straightening
  • Stress-relieving annealing
  • Solution annealing and quenching
  • Precipitation hardening
  • Tempering

Assembly and welding.

The most suitable welding process.

We are able to perform all fabrication, repair and joint welding on our components or have it performed under our direction. Our welders are certified according to DIN EN 9606-4. Our specialists will select the most suitable or economical welding process for you. We offer the following processes:

  • MIG
  • MAG
  • MMW (manual metal arc welding)
  • Laser welding (external)
  • Electron beam welding (external)

Material testing and quality control.

Design and materials consulting.

We are continuously working on metallurgical and manufacturing technology developments to ensure highest quality of our products. We carry out material testing as well as regular quality inspections, for which we have the most modern technologies available in our three in-house X-ray departments. In addition to the X-ray inspection of weld seams, tests are also carried out on the workpiece. We can X-ray wall thicknesses of up to 250 mm (steel).

  • Mechanical testing
  • Metallographic testing
  • Corrosion testing
  • Non-destructive testing

Sustainable work.

Economy and environment in harmony.

Higher demands of our customers as well as the ever increasing desire for higher performance motivate us every day to develop optimizations in terms of product efficiency and longevity. The focus at S+C is on reconciling economy and the environment. How do we achieve this?

  • Sustainable and resource-saving production
  • Conscious material selection
  • Recycling
  • Focusing on extended product lifetime

We warm up where others break a sweat.
