The steels for high-speed machining, commonly called free-cutting steels, have been specially designed to be machined by chip removal with high productivity. Free-cutting steels – which are commonly used in many mass production fields such as the automobile industry and household appliances – contain sulfur and some other elements, including tellurium, bismuth and lead, which promote machinability. In particular, the sulfur ensures the fragmentation of the chip, lead reduces the friction between the tool and piece, extending the life of the tools, and the tellurium and bismuth further accentuate these characteristics. Free-cutting steels are usually supplied in bars or rolls without heat treatment; some of these can however be tempered, normalized or annealed before finishing.
RoadJob Academy: The industry's future begins here!
A new initiative for the territory and the next generation unveiled in Lecco.
On Monday October 7th there was the unveiling and presentation that officially kicked off the operating phase of the RoadJob Academy. Reserved for people between the ages of 18 and 29, the RoadJob Academy is the sum of 3 educational courses designed to train and tutor tomorrows industry professionals whilst also allowing easy access to Italys best industries. The partnership of the business world with that of training represents, for the men and women attending the Academy, a unique opportunity to receive specific training and gives them a real fast track in finding work in the industry.
“It has become necessary to collaborate with schools, universities and institutions to attract and develop the on-the-job skills needed to overcome todays challenges as well as those of the future.” Mauro Califano HR said at the unveiling event. Other than market trends and its business goals, Rodacciai is also committed to community involvement for professional and human development; promoting Roadjob also achieves this.
Community involvement, professional growth and the personal empowerment of the participants are the founding principles of the Roadjob Academy: goals that can only be achieved through innovative didactic methods within a course designed to maximise the participants experience and learning. We will contribute to the project by offering visits to plants and factories, lessons held by technicians and managers, exchange events with professionals and open days with industry leaders.
Specialized in the production of steel for all industrial uses, Rodacciai has always distinguished itself through a unique production philosophy: the choice to have, just a few years after its foundation, its own rolling mill. This decision marked the companys history and is still of great importance today in determining the relationship with the customer: while production is normally directly connected to the production needs of the rolling mills, which are organized for large campaigns, Rodacciai can in fact activate the rolling cycles by following the production needs of the moment, which provides unique production flexibility and responsiveness, accompanied by a constant focus on quality and to the certification of products and processes.
