Forging billets

Sandvik's billets for forging are suitable for producing all types of forged products, such as flanges, discs, rings, valves, forged parts, and axles. Our program of forging billets includes a wide range of stainless steels and high-alloy materials.

Re-rolling billets

Billets for re-rolling of strip, wire, bar, hexagons and profiles, available in square and rectangular sizes. The production route for re-rolling billets is often more simplified than that for forging billets, since in most cases products do not require a dense center. For many of these products, continuous cast material can be used, which contributes to lower raw material costs.
