Metallurgy has a central position in Seamthesis' R&D and specialist industrial consultancy activities. Starting from steels (carbon and stainless) the activity of R&D, development of processes and products, structural and functional analysis, development of the best manufacturing and transformation technologies, Industry 4.0 and Big Data, has been gradually extended.


stainless steel Duplex, Superduplex e Hyperduplex

Tool steel

superalloys Ni, Co, Cr, Mo based

light alloys Ti, Al. Cu, Sn based

metallic- ceramic materials (intermetallic)

refractory metal

noble metal (Au, Ag, Pt, Pd)

High performance ceramics and polymerics

Seamthesis works on specific thermical quality treatments, definition of processing and trasformation fitting thefinal product (semifinished as well), hot and cold forming, welding and jointing specifications, surface treatment processes, etc. to support the customer and the final use of the material / product / component.

Main activities

Seamthesis main industrial activities are about the following sectors:

  • Steel industry (entire transformation cycle, from the mine to the shipped product)
  • Tubes&pipes (welded and non-welded)
  • Forging
  • Oil&Gas (offshore, onshore, raffinazione)
  • Chemical (from oil refining on, green activities included)
  • Fossil energy (eg. coke, oil), natural gas, nuclear (fission and fusion), renewables (wind, solar thermodynamic and photovoltaic, hydroelectric)
  • Aerospacial (structurale and engine desing)
  • Automotive (structurale and engine desing)
  • Railway and naval (structurale and engine desing)
  • Industry in general
  • Mechanics (eg. distribution, suspension, brake systeme)
  • Biomedical (especially bone protheses) and dental
  • Thermotechnical and combustion materials
  • Surface coating technologies (functional and structural)
  • Surface and volume treatments in controlled atmosphere
  • Tooling
  • Electro-magnetic omponents
  • and much more

combining, on case-by-case basis, with one of more of these functions or properties:

  • Mechanical resistance to static
  • Abrasion and fatigue resistance (cold and hot)
  • Corrosion and stress corrosion cracking resistance
  • Creep resistance and e creep-stress
  • Fatigue resistance (polycucle, low cycle, megacycle, in different load application ways), on welded and non-welded material
  • Impact resistance
  • High toughness (both hot and cold)
  • Fragility reduction (both hot and cold)
  • Fire resistance
  • leak before break
  • failure analysis (pre and post-mortem)
  • and much more.
