VÍTKOVICE - Research and development - technical applications deals with the magnetically soft steel and research and development of die steel with increased resistance to abrasion and plastic deformation. It also deals with improving the utility properties of these materials and tool life.


In addition is research focused on:

  • development of new types of steels and alloys with increased properties
  • verification of the effectiveness of repairs forging dies
  • the application of mikropuls welding technology
  • effective production of advanced materials
  • increasing utility properties of products
  • introduction of new production methods of steels and alloys
  • organizing of lectures and educational seminars
