  • Optimised production processes

    In any mass production process, costs are key. As a steel producer, we understand only too well how inefficiencies in any process step can lead to increased costs. And this can impact on your overall profitability. That’s why we tailor our products to your processes as well as we possibly can.

    Reducing Total Cost of Ownership by improved process efficiency

    We believe that the ability to produce high quality products at minimal cost is key to success in the automotive world. This holds true for every part of the automotive value chain - from raw material supplier, to part supplier and original equipment manufacturer. This is why we pay special attention to the processability of our products. We work continuously to optimise our products – making sure they are:

    • easy to press
    • easy to assemble 

    Stamping complex geometries

    Limited space and routing options dictate complex suspension component geometries. Stamping of these components has to be simplified wherever possible to a single 'draw and flange forming' step. Our steels offer:

    • consistent properties and tight control of material thickness - for trouble-free, repeatable processing
    • high surface quality – enabling fewer processing steps

    Our highly formable steels, and especially our XPF product range, can help to increase working speed and yield in the production of components with challenging shapes.

    Assembly

    All of our steels, including AHSS and UHSS, are designed to be welded with conventional welding processes like spot, laser, and arc welding. We achieve this by using chemistries containing only low amounts of alloying elements that can disrupt the welding process. 

    Advanced engineering services

    Within our advanced engineering services portfolio, we have developed the Total Cost of Ownership Scan to support you in:

    • identifying hidden press shop costs
    • quantifying these hidden costs
    • and eliminating these costs.
