Westf. Eisen und Stahl was founded by Dieter Jürging on 01.01.1955. Our founder laid the basis for the company in the high-growth 1960s and 70s. Mr Frank Jürging has been with the company since 1985. He has been the sole managing director since 2002.
A team supports him in purchasing, logistics and sales. We are guided by the needs of our customers. Customer satisfaction is our motivation.
The Westf. Eisen und Stahl generally conducts trade transactions on the route, without its own warehouse. This avoids expensive handling costs. Shipping depots are only used when necessary. WES trades in long products from “thin” wire rod or peeled rod, through raw continuous casting, rolled steel rods or billets right up to “thick” forged rods. We are therefore a partner of the steel processing industry, especially the forging, spring and flange industries. But also mechanical engineering and rolling companies are among our customers. We have the right supplier for every application from 11 mm to 750 mm in diameter. The task of WES is to build up suppliers, especially on the import side, to process orders and deliver just in time, as well as to generate price advantages through volume bundling. We have a network of long-term factory contacts, and we are also in the market as a factory representative in some cases. We see ourselves as “real” service providers. Please test Westf. Eisen und Stahl and submit your requests.
The forgings are made from the following types of steel: carbon steel, alloy steel, quenched and tempered steel, case hardening steel, bearing steel, hot and cold work steel. According to the following standards: PN, EN, DIN, ASTM, AISI, SAE.
Our Polish supplier delivers the forged parts: thermally treated, raw (without mechanical treatment), after mechanical treatment. The products are subjected to the following tests: control of mechanical properties, ultrasonic testing, microscopic examination. The input material used for the manufacture of the products comes from both domestic and foreign producers who have the required ISO certificates and approvals from classification societies.
This production programme is an innovative, low-waste technology for machining large rings using rolling and forging processes, which is developed and verified under real conditions. The solution obtained enables rings with a diameter of up to 3800 mm and a height of up to 800 mm to be produced with a complex cross-sectional geometry consisting of a whole spectrum of steel grades including special steels and non-ferrous metal alloys. The rings are, for example, from the common grades C45, S355J2G3, 42CrMo4, 34CrNiMo6 and 30CrNiMo88. Many other materials are also in use and can of course be requested. The products can be manufactured as almost finished products with minimal tolerance. The new processing line, together with a unique defect detection station and an automated material transfer system, enables the production of ring products with minimal processing allowances, which are characterized by a uniform material structure over the entire cross section.
With a capacity of 20,000 tons, the high quality drop forge manufactures parts for the automotive, railway and mining industries.
The Turkish forge has a wide range of system configurations with hammers and presses, its own toolmaking facility and machining. The weight class goes from a part weight of 500 grams to 80 kilograms as well as mechanical processing.
With modern technology, high production capacity and first-class infrastructure, the company is a technologically leading manufacturer of forged parts. The activities consist of:
