FOUNDRY RESOURCES AND KNOW-HOW
Specialized foundry in stainless steels and superalloys
As the internal toolmaker and 100% subsidiary of the Saint-Gobain group, SEVA has an integrated foundry specializing in the casting of technical parts in stainless steels, refractory steels, high-alloyed steels, nickel-based alloys, cobalt-based alloys and superalloys. With an integrated metallurgy laboratory, we develop and produce our own grades according to our customers' requirements.
Turnkey projects, from the study of the foundry to the assembly through machining, all in an integrated digital chain.
