Castelleone

Business area Europe, coil and plate service center

Home to both a coil service center and a plate service center, Castelleone is one of Outokumpu’s biggest European service centers. Tailor-made solutions with short lead times set Castelleone apart from its competitors.

The Castelleone operation includes a comprehensive coil service center and plate service center. Three cut-to-length lines, two slitting lines and four polishing lines (including two coil-to-coil brushing lines and two sheet polishing lines) comprise the coil service center. The plate service center features two plasma lines and four band saw lines. Together, the two service centers generate more than 90,000 tonnes of products annually.

Polished and brushed surface finishes are a specialty area at Castelleone. An advanced solution uses elastic cork particles to produce Scotch Brite finishes on plates up to 20 mm thick. Effectively cushioning the grinding process, cork also delivers superior uniformity while eliminating stripes and other marks across the width and length of the coil. The result: flawless surfaces essential in the domestic appliance and catering industries.

Castelleone enjoys a unique competitive advantage through its offering of special products from the Outokumpu Pro Family. Duplex and other high strength stainless steels from the Forta range – available only through Outokumpu – are especially popular in the chemical and tank industries.
