Steel Industry

ELVI’s experience in the steel industry dates back to the end of the 1960s, when a partnership (that was to last app. 20 years) with the Lavezzari Group was created to address automated plate steel manufacturing processes in Italy and abroad.
Since then, Elvi has held a leading role in several collaborative projects on important national and international programmes, gaining evermore diversified experience and increasing its knowledge of dynamic, state-of-the-art technologies.
Elvi has produced automation prototypes of innovative creations for the future (plasma torches), specialised products (rotating shears, flying shears and automated blade changers), MES hardware and software plus feasibility studies on continuous billet welding systems.
We are therefore able to competently, and capably, interpret and satisfy specific industry automation requirements, such as:
