Guaranteed was created in 2019 as a spin-off company from Finindus, ArcelorMittal Belgium and OCAS. We combine cutting-edge metal innovation with entrepreneurship. We are supported by an industrial footprint to guarantee first-time-right part production and provide one-stop-shop reliability. We create value for our customers by producing, repairing or refurbishing metal parts to allow lifetime extension or downtime reduction of industrial equipment.
A spin-off company created in 2019 by OCAS, Finindus & ArcelorMittal.
Creating value by producing, repairing & refurbishing large metal parts. This allows lifetime extension or downtime reduction of industrial equipment.
Born from innovation to guarantee first time right.
Raised in industry to guarantee one-stop-shop reliability.
The five genes of our DNA
GUARANTEED’s focus is on repairing or rebuilding large
slow-moving components beyond conventional techniques, thereby prolonging the life of ageing industrial
equipment, reducing long lead times and eliminating storage costs. As a tight respect of lead-times is
important to our customers, we work with proven & robust industrial components to ensure
high TRL-level and reliability of our production equipment.
In-situ process monitoring capabilities allow for closed-loop process control to minimize the risk of defect formation. On-line NDT implementation guarantees that residual defects are detected and corrected on the fly in order to achieve zero-defect manufacturing capabilities, fully aligned with the GUARANTEED brand.
Guaranteed industrial footprint
GUARANTEED offers a one-stop-shop approach in order to keep full control on our quality and lead-times as well as to respond to our customers’ needs to receive ready-to-install parts at the lowest possible TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
This is why the GUARANTEED operations are currently embedded within ArcelorMittal Belgium. This approach provides us direct access to a state-of-the-art workshop, but even more important to highly skilled workers in an environment where safety, quality and customers are the number one priority.
First time right, zero-defect manufacturing
The first-time-right zero-defect capability of our process is key in achieving both short lead-times and high-quality components. For this purpose, GUARANTEED uses the most advanced WAAM process software currently available which is developed by one of our strategic partners. This is complemented with in-house developed unique specific welding, metallurgical and in-use property simulation capabilities which ensure the selection of optimal production parameters from the very first produced part.
