Solution Engineering

What you can expect from us

 

On behalf of companies and public institutions, IWT-Solutions AG finds answers to material technology questions in the context of steel, cast steel and cast iron. We formulate our solution proposals according to the specifications discussed. To this end, we translate the questions posed by our clients into a clear technical and/or mechanical task.

Each project is tailored to the specific needs and constraints of the client in terms of content and organisation. We act dynamically and can adapt the planned solutions of a project at any time to the course of the project. This enables us to meet the requirements of small and medium-sized companies as well as the requirements of a large company or the public sector.

 

Cracks in steel or cast iron? We provide security and planning scope.

We can help you…

… if cracks or imperfections occur in steel and cast parts, which limit the scope of planning and safety.

Damage analysis, damage appraisals and damage control

We can help you…

… with finding the cause of damage in buildings and machines

Cost optimisation for steel use, material optimisation

We can help you…

  • … if you are thinking about innovative steel use.
  • … if steel is the central material (cost bearer) for your products and you are looking for optimization options for use.
  • … if you want to improve your material specifications in-house.

In dealing with normative requirements.

We can help you…

  • … if plates, profiles/shapes/sections, pipes etc. or welded connections do not meet normative requirements.
  • … if you use steels in regulated areas that are not covered by a standard approved by the building authorities (e.g. mechanical steels in steel construction).

We advise you on restructuring steel structures and life extension of steel structures

We can help you…

  • … if there is uncertainty about the mechanical properties, brittle fracture resistance and welding possibilities of old or historic steel structures.
  • … if the service life of steel structures is to be extended.

Optimized use of high-strength steels

We can help you…

… if you are looking for high-strength to ultra-high-strength steels for use in lightweight steel construction.

Retrofitting of steel structures for low-temperature applications

We can help you…

  • … if steel and cast iron structures need to be reinforced for lower temperatures and higher loads.
  • … if you are looking for steel suitable for low-temperature applications and that needs to be qualified.

Training in steel and fracture mechanics

We can help you…

… if you and your employees would like to deepen your internal know-how about steel and its various properties.
