Steel Castings and Forgings
|Kobe Steel's steel castings and forgings have earned an outstanding reputation in international markets. In addition to marine crankshafts and propeller shafts, we supply rotor shafts and turbine blades to the power generation industry and manufacture a wide range of metal molds for plastics. |
We also manufacture corrosion- and wear-resistant steel cylinders for use in extruders and injection-molding machines, and materials for cutting tools employing hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technology.
|We command a significant share of the global market for large marine crankshafts. We have obtained ISO 9002 certification for these products, which have earned the praise of customers around the worlds.|
|Products based on HIP|
|Kobe Steel manufactures a variety of sophisticated products based on advanced HIP and powder metallurgy technologies. Products in this steadily expanding category include cylinders for injection-molding machines. The quality of our offerings in this area owes much to the proprietary, highly functional powders used in the HIP lining.|
