NICRO S.p.A. specializes in the fabrication of a wide range of components for different industrial applications in high-grade stainless steel alloys. NICRO offers an extensive production program and tailor-made solutions to suit customers' specific requirements, operating in the frame of the ISO 9001:2008 quality system. Significant investments were made in state-of-the-art machines for the processing of alloy steel plates: 3D laser machines, plasma cutting and welding, and orbital welding. In recent years, the attention for energy saving and lower environmental impact solutions brought NICRO to focus its research on the development of a new line of products: the radiant tubes fitting the latest CAL and CGL plants. The goal of this research is to combine the need to achieve higher temperatures and output volumes and keep in control energy and emissions.
