Material Knowledge

The SWSTech engineers' machining know-how covers the following materials:

  • Steels
  • Stainless steels
  • Hardened steels
  • Aluminium alloys
  • Magnesium alloys
  • Titanium alloys, Titanuminid
  • Nickel/Cobalt base alloys (e.g. Inconel, Hastelloy)
  • plastics

For the various materials we use especially developed tools and respective machining strategies. However, manifold experiences in the following spheres are necessary:

  • Application dependent material selection
  • Manufacturing or availability of blank material
    • Bars or plates
    • Various casting methods
    • Sintering/hot isostatic pressing
    • forging
  • machining sequence with intermediate stress relieve treatment
  • pre- and post-heat treatment
  • additional machining steps (e.g. grinding processes)
  • joining processes (e.g. welding, brazing, ..)
  • coatings

SWSTech implements this know how into the process, either derived from the company's own expertise or in co-operation with partners.
