Vallourec Competence Center Riesa
The Vallourec Competence Center Riesa is unique in the world and has contributed to the success of the Vallourec Group since 2010. When Vallourec develops a new steel, it is not only thoroughly tested in the laboratory. Since 2010, the company has also had its own test facility, where it carries out pilot tests on 2,500 square meters. This saves material, ongoing production is not interrupted and the results can easily be transferred to industrial dimensions. At the heart of the competence center are a universal piercing mill, a three-roll bar mill (PQF®) (5 stands) and a four-hammer radial forge for the production of seamless tubes and premium forged pipes (PFP®).
