Overview

Meeting design demands

Body-in-white design demands affordability and improved crash performance, combined with low weight. Our advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) and ultra high-strength steels (UHSS) help meet those demands and provide good formability.

Tata Steel supports customers in finding the optimum balance between cost, lightweight design potential and performance for specific applications. Total cost of ownership (TCO) concept studies identify and quantify the TCO reduction potential offered by Tata Steel’s advanced steel solutions like HyperForm® for specific automotive applications.

Applications

Applications for our advanced high-strength and ultra high-strength steels include:

  • automotive A-, B- and C-pillars
  • box girders for chassis
  • crash boxes
  • crossbeams and cross members
  • roofbows
  • door and sill reinforcements
  • support components
