Since ancient times, India has had a rich culture of metallurgy as evidenced in the archeological finds from Indian Iron age.

Continuing the heritage with Secan’s integrated approach to manufacturing is led by the alloy and process expertise of more than 50 metallurgists and engineers across globally. This integrated approach allows us to partner with customers on the journey from product design to delivery to make their products better.


Metallurgists at Secan help customers choose specific alloys to improve product performance, especially in high-heat, high-wear, and high-corrosion environments.

Value Engineering

Value engineering is a systematic approach to analyze manufacturing costs and related processes. Engineers at Secan work directly with customers to understand specific product needs and then make recommendations for the manufacturing process that achieves the highest possible product quality at the lowest possible cost.

Advantages of Secan's integrated metallurgy and value engineering approach include

Market expertise: Our metallurgists and engineers help customers meet the strictest levels of compliance through decades of combined experience in demanding, high-specification markets such as Cement, Power, Steel, Minerals and Petrochemical.

Conversion assistance: SECAN engineers help customers reduce costs and improve product quality by converting castings from alternative processes such as fabrications or forgings.

Alloy selection: SECAN routinely pours over 500 ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, including proprietary grades. Our metallurgists work directly with customers to choose alloys that meet the most demanding product requirements.

Casting process selection: From centrifugal casting to sand casting to investment casting to shell casting, our engineers use the latest computer modeling tools to help customers determine which casting processes best fits their specific product needs.

Rapid prototyping: SECAN can significantly reduce cost and time to market through several different rapid prototyping technologies.

Training: Our metallurgists and engineers conduct on-site or virtual training on subjects such as casting or alloy selection, conversions from fabrications or forgings, product design, or other topics tailored to specific needs.
