  • Service Centres - Spain - Automotive

    Located in the Basque country in northern Spain, our Layde steel service centre is dedicated to the transformation of steel products, with particularly strong capabilities and long-standing experience in the automotive market.

    • Cold rolled steel: consistent, reliable products

      Our advanced and ultra high-strength cold-rolled steels DP600, DP800, DP1000 and HQ1500 are lightweight and enable design freedom for complex parts.

      Their high yield and ductility ensure shape accuracy and tolerancing, which enable thickness reduction and maintained in-service performance for difficult-to-form parts.

    • La certificación garantiza una calidad excepcional

      Nuestro centro de servicios de Layde es otra muestra de nuestro compromiso por satisfacer las exigencias de la industria del automóvil.

      Cuenta con la certificación ISO/TS 16949 Ed: 2009, la  principal norma de gestión de calidad reconocida en todo el mundo para las organizaciones que pertenecen a las cadenas de suministro del sector de las motocicletas y los vehículos de motor.

    • HSLA for enhanced product strength

      The Ymagine® range is available in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades that are easy to process. H500, for example, offers excellent formability in strong, lightweight automotive components in gauges that are hard to produce in hot strip mills.

    Overview

     

    Meeting your needs

    Layde Steel slu is located in Durango, Spain, very close to the port of Bilbao. This offers very good logistics for our incoming Tata Steel material from the Netherlands and the UK. Our steel service centre supplies customers in the automotive industry with a wide range of steel grades designed to:

    • reduce vehicle weight
    • increase passenger safety

    Our steels are used for a variety of modern automotive components used in:

    • chassis
    • suspension
    • wheels
    • seats
    • interior
    • body in white

    All of our products are manufactured according to the highest automotive standards with a clear focus on continuous improvement (ISO TS16949).

    Proven capability

    Layde Steel has been serving customers since 1941. At our service center, we slit and package coils and sheets to meet your exact needs. We offer the following steel products:

    • pickled
    • hot-dip galvanised
    • standard cold-rolled
    • electrozinc  coated
    • organic-coated

    All coils are produced at Tata Steel mills although the pickled material is generally processed at Layde.

    The following standard grades are available, with all properties following the Euronorm.

    • Pickled - DD11 to DD14 - EN 10111
    • Pickled - S235JR to S355JR – EN 10025
    • Pickled - S315MC to S700MC – EN 10149
    • Galvanized - DX51D + Z/ZF to DX57D+Z/ZF - EN 10346
    • Galvanized - S220GD+Z to S550GD+Z - EN 10346
    • Galvanized - HX260LAD+Z/ZF to HX420LAD+Z/ZF - EN 10346
    • Galvanized - HCT600X+Z/ZF to HCT780X+Z - EN 10346

    We operate several slitting lines and one cut-to-length line. We can produce strips and sheets in the following dimensions:

    • width - from 25mm to 1650mm
    • length - from 300mm to 6000mm

    Tailored solutions

    We improve our processes continuously in order to add value and deliver tailored solutions to our customers. We have a dynamic, flexible and agile team that works hard to achieve cost-effective operations. Our steel service centre is certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard.

    Environmental performance

    Protection of the environment is one of the pillars of our business strategy. We have implemented an Environmental Management System based on international standard ISO 14001:2004. You can find additional information in our downloads section.

    Processing capability

     

    Layde has the following facilities, operated by highly-qualified people:

    Pickling line

    Our pickling line is a 136m long facility that uses a hydrochloric acid bath to remove the surface oxide layer on hot-rolled coils. This ensures the surface is completely clean and dry - allowing post-process oiling and eliminating the risk of oxidation. This facility is directly connected to a slitting line where we produce strips to the final width required by customers.

    Cold rolling

    Our facilities consist of two reversing 650mm SENDIZIMIR cold rolling mills. Thanks to them we can produce very fine tolerances across the entire thickness range. Our manufacturing range is between 0.20mm and 3mm (gauge) and between 10mm and 650mm (width). Inner diameters are 400-508mm depending on the product.

    Annealing

    Our EBNER furnaces are fully automatic. They use natural gas and a 100% hydrogen atmosphere that delivers an equal temperature in the whole coil. This ensures identical mechanical characteristics throughout the entire coil. This process also prevents contractions that can cause marks and scratches on the coil surface. Use of hydrogen provides a coil surface that is extraordinary clean and oil-free.

    Slitters and Cut-to-Length (CTL)

    For processing our precision cold-rolled, galvanised, electrozinc coated and pre-finished steel coils, we have different slitters and a cut-to-length facility. These produce material to meet the final dimensions required by customers.  Our capabilities are: from 25mm to 1850mm (width) and from 300mm to 6000mm (length).

    Skinpass

    We have skinpass facilities that provide material with a slight surface hardening but without modifying any of its mechanical properties. This process delivers a smooth surface within the roughness range demanded by customers.

    Dimensional capability

     SlittingDecoilingPickling
    Thickness 0.2 – 7.0mm 0.3 – 3.0mm 1.4 – 7.0mm
    Width 10 – 1650mm 300 – 1500mm  Up to 1300mm
    Length - 300 – 6000mm -

    Max. pickling strength level is 800 MPa.

    Please consult our sales department regarding specific technical feasibility of dimensional combinations, tolerances and grades.
