Product Development


Speed up development cycles taking advantage of the Steel Block pilot factory

IDONIAL and ArcelorMittal have a long experience in developing steel grades, but now the combination between the years of experience, the concentration of pilot plants and the collaboration with external partners in a pilot factory as is the steel block makes the difference, allowing big reductions in the development times.

not only steel

Other type of materials can be developed as the pilot factory has productive capabilities useful not only for steel

Melting, Hot and Cold Rolling, Heating and Cooling, Coating, Welding, Machining and Testing Capabilities are originally developed for steel but can be applied in many different areas.

processes development

More efficient and environmental friendly Processes are the key of the factory of the future

Technologies related with safer and cleaner processes are tested and developed in the Steel Block which acts as catalyst for a quick maduration of such technologies
