  • Chassis and suspension steels

    Ridehandling performance is paramount – demanding clever solutions for chassis and suspension (C&S) design. Designers must address durability and safety issues, along with weight savings for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. In addition, vehicle package constraints dictate complex component geometries.

    It all adds up to a demand for stiff, durable, formable and lightweight steel. Tata Steel is here to help you strike the balance.

    Our advanced products and related services support you with:

    Steels for every automotive application

    We offer a wide range of hot-rolled and galvanised steels for chassis and suspension components. These aid the design of lightweight and cost-effective components without compromising performance. 

    Our standard or differentiated advanced high strength steels meet the highest automotive standards. We always aim to reduce your Total Cost of Ownership with products that not only contribute to component optimisation but also help to improve productivity. They deliver stiffness, strength, formability and weldability for:

    • reliable performance
    • cost-effective processing

    The newest addition to our product range, XPF-steels, have a combination of (ultra) high strength, excellent elongation and outstanding HEC. This results in a high strength, highly formable steel - enabling complex geometric designs that can take full advantage of opportunities for:

    • lightweighting
    • downgauging
