- Through the years the Company has always followed closely all development and integration of new metal alloys.
Thanks to this approach, Inoxfucine was equipped with technologically advanced equipment for open die forging of stainless steel including duplex and super-duplex alloys, nickel alloys and carbon steel.
- In the first years from its establishment, Inoxfucine implemented an investment plan aimed at starting-up the business with the development of machinery and know-how for heat treatment of stainless steel, which allowed to entry in the supply of forged components even for automotive industry.
- In 1982, in order to increase the product categories Inoxfucine acquired 51% of Conaco, a SME engaged in the manufacturing and selling of components for piping.
- In this decade, Conaco was fully incorporated in Inoxfucine and specialised itself in manufacturing of a wide range of cast “Y” type strainers, including patterns for all sizes from 1/2” to 24” and all ratings from #150 psi to #4,500 psi.
- The production range includes also TEE type bath-tub strainers, single Basket in-line strainers and Temporary strainers from 2” up to 80” size. Construction materials are carbon steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metals and exotic alloys.
- Inoxfucine forging division has pursued the expansion plan in the open die forging market through investments for ring rolling machines, machining plant and a specialized laboratory to perform in-house all mechanical and metallurgical tests.
- Throughout this period, Inoxfucine built a well-known reputation for commitment suppling products in strategic industries as nuclear, aerospace and healthcare always keeping the leadership also for driving sectors such as chemical, food and pharmaceutical.
