Alleima expands production capacity in Sandviken

Alleima invests in a new vacuum arc remelting (VAR) furnace to expand production capacity for segments like Aerospace, Medical, and Oil and Gas. Production is planned to start during autumn 2025.

Extensive efforts in research and development have led to a new platform for high alloyed nickel grades and Alleima’s new products Sanicro® 625 and Sanicro® 925 have been well received by the market.

Currently, Alleima has three VAR furnaces at the production site in Sandviken, Sweden. With the addition of a new furnace, Alleima will be able to meet the increased demand for remelted materials in high nickel and stainless steel.

Sanicro® 625 is a very versatile grade with applications in many industries, while Sanicro® 925 is a niched grade that is mainly used in the oil and gas industry due to the ability to withstand the demanding environment.
