  • Automotive - Direct-rolled

    Tata Steel’s Ymagine® direct-rolled product line includes focuses on high-strength grades.

    Consistent product characteristics deliver trouble-free processing and help to maximise yield. Ymagine is pickled and oiled and offers excellent thickness tollerances and highly consistent material properties. 

    HSLA grades for enhanced product strength

    The Ymagine® range is available in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades that are easy to process.

    H500-UC, for example, offers excellent bendability in strong, lightweight automotive components in gauges and gauge tolerances that are hard to produce in hot strip mills.

    Overview

    Processing

    Processing is straightforward with Ymagine®. Due to the low content of residual elements, it provides good weldability using all conventional welding methods.Ymagine is coatable and has been successfully tested for wet paint as well as powder coatings.

    The main benefits of Ymagine direct-rolled steel include:

    • end products of consistent and reliable quality
    • lighter and stronger products
    • faster and easier processing
    • increased output per tonne of steel
    • reduced waste and rework

     

    Applications

    Seating rails and other components
    Possible substitute for cold rolled uncoated HSLA steels

     

    Grades

    The product range includes five high-strength low-alloy steels:  Ymagine H240-UC, Ymagine H320-UC,Ymagine H360-UC, Ymagine H420-UC and Ymagine H500-UC.

    Shape and dimensional tolerances

    Tolerances on thickness

    Ymagine® is available with the following tolerances.

    Dimensions in mm:

    Thickness

    Tolerances

    1.15 ≤ t ≤ 2.0

    ± 0.05

    2.0 < t < 2.5

    ± 0.06 1

    2.5 ≤ t ≤ 3.0

    ± 0.07 2

    3.0 < t ≤ 4.0

    ± 0.09 3

    1. In some instances, the material will be supplied with a tolerance of -0.06/+0.15 mm, only on the coil head and tail and to a maximum of 20 metres from the start of the coil.
    2. In some instances, the material will be supplied with a tolerance of -0.07/+0.17 mm, only on the coil head and tail and to a maximum of 20 metres from the start of the coil.
    3. In some instances, the material will be supplied with a tolerance of -0.09/+0.21 mm, only on the coil head and tail and to a maximum of 20 metres from the start of the coil.

     

    Tolerances on width

    Width tolerances comply with standard EN 10051:2010 (hot-rolled) and
    EN 10131:2006 (cold-rolled). Closer tolerances are possible – please contact us for details.

     

    Dimensions and coil weights

    The weight of weld-free coils can be specified freely between 13 and 20.5 kg/mm.

    Ymagine is supplied with trimmed edges as standard. Mill edges are available on request.

    Description

    Dimension or weight

    Outside diameter

    minimum 1050 mm

    maximum 2000 mm (Ymagine®)

    maximum 2100 mm (mill scale)

    Coil weight

    maximum 31.5 tonne 1

    1. For Ymagine H500-UC the maximum coil weight is 25 tonne for thicknesses > 2.5 mm.
    Tata Steel assumes a minimum and a maximum coil weight agreed upon with the customer on the basis of our normal production practices and an order quantity corresponding to this coil weight. Usually a minimum coil weight up to 90% of the maximum coil weight can be requested.

    Surface aspects

    The surface quality of Ymagine is comparable to hot-rolled pickled and oiled
    i.e. 1 - 3 μm Ra (cut off 2.5 mm). Ymagine is suitable for cold-rolled applications that are not surface-critical.
