Ofar, established in 1961, has a long-lasting tradition in the forging industry, and it is leader in the supply of products for Oil & Gas, mechanical, heavy engineering, naval, petrolchemical and power generation industries. Ofar relies on two manufacturing plants, both situated in the North of Italy, one in Visano and another one in Canneto sull’Oglio which develop over an area of 170,000 sqm whose 60,000 are roofed. The company was founded in 1961 and it became part of GIVA Group in 1985. Leader in the international and national market for the supply of forgings, in 2011 Ofar invested and inaugurated a green field production plant situated in Canneto. The new plant is dedicated to the manufacturing of heavy forgings from 50 to 250 tons equipped with state of the art machines: a new 13.000 ton press, integrated manipulator handling up 250 ton, horizontal heat treatment furnaces up to 28 meters, vertical furnaces to heat treat pieces as long as 16 meters and an innovative vertical spraying quenching heat treatment facility.
Ofar has internal rough machining departments that are equipped with CNC machines capable of handling parts up to 28 meters. Close surveillance of the entire manufacturing chain ensure high quality standards on all products. An internal laboratory can perform a wide range of mechanical tests, such as: tensile, elevated T tensile up to a 1000 °C, room T Charpy, low T Charpy as far as -196 °C, bend, hardness and rotating bend tests; metallographic examinations can also be done in house: inclusional state, austenitic grain, micrographies (structures from x100 to x1000), replicas and macrographies; all NDE are performed in house, such as PMI, UT, DPI, outside and inside diameter MPI and boroscopic test. The new Heat Stability Test machine for shafts up to 12 mt represents a guarantee for quality for all Ofar customers in the Power Generation business. Consistent investments in the quality control area have been implemented to reach the target of zero defects.
