METAL FORMING APPLICATIONS
Metal forming industries occupy a changing landscape. Rapid technological advancements coupled with changing regulations emphasise the need for fabricators to evolve in-line with demand. Novel precision engineering solutions can provide the competitive edge required to meet the interlinked needs of OEMs and regulators. At International Syalons, we partner with supply chain managers to deliver affordable metal forming equipment that promotes greater operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness without compromising product quality.
Our solutions set the standard for innovation in the metal forming industry. We produce metal forming and welding equipment based on advanced alumina, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, and zirconia ceramics. These oxide- and non-oxide materials offer unmatched durability and length of service. Designed to withstand enormous thermal shock, sustained impact and wear abrasion, plus chemical attack from various sources, our systems provide unparalleled value, efficiency, and longevity in diverse metal forming applications.
Advanced technical ceramics, especially in metal forming applications, must not only be robust but also demonstrate superior mechanical strength, toughness, and resistance to wear, corrosion, and thermal shocks. Our Syalon and Zircalon ceramics not only meet but exceed these demands. They are available in a diverse product range, ensuring that procurement managers can source the ideal solution for every application.

Drawing and extrusion dies require high strength and outstanding wear resistance, dimensional stability and the ability to give an excellent surface finish. Syalon 101 meets these requirements, as well as having excellent thermal shock resistance.
Syalon 101 and Zircalon are firmly established in the resistance welding sector, particularly as location pins for welding captive nuts to body panels in automotive and commercial vehicle assembly. We manufacture a vast range of standard weld pins.
In addition to location pins, we also manufacture a variety of other welding jigs, fixtures, shrouds and nozzles, for orbital welding, tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, metal inert gas (MIG) welding, induction welding and plasma welding.
Syalon 101 welding rollers are used in the forge welding of metal pipes and tubes. The outstanding thermal and mechanical properties of sialon result in reduced welding roll maintenance and improved pipe quality.
