Rotary batch blenders help DIP get pre-mixes to market fast
Ductil Iron Powder [DIP], Buzau, Romania, was established in 2000 as a spin-off of Ductil Steel. Its products are iron and alloyed powders for use in powder metallurgy and welding applications.
The plant for making the iron powders began operation in 1995, and by 2000 it reached its current capacity of 10,000 metric tons per year. DIP is owned by two other metals companies: Feralpi Siderurgica and Sider Sipe of Italy.
The DIP strategy calls for continuous improvement of its product range, with an emphasis on high-performance powders, such as those used to manufacture automotive parts. The strategy also calls for a gradual increase in capacity as the company meets its quality goals.
