Light and heavy with extreme durability
Modern mechanical and plant engineering needs innovative technologies and reliable as well as high-quality materials. The steel business of thyssenkrupp develops and manufactures products that both technically and economically belong to the most efficient products of our time.
For production equipment, process engineering and other machinery and plant engineering, our product range offers everything from unalloyed structural steels to very hard sophisticated special steels. Heavy plates by thyssenkrupp, e.g., are the material basis for highly stressed structural steelwork, ensuring maximum robustness and load-carrying capacity with a clearly reduced dead weight. The wear-resistant XAR® steels are available in various grades and sheet thicknesses and lend themselves as an innovative solution, for instance, in fields of use such as mining technology or steel or cement plants. In addition to unalloyed boiler plates and alloyed steels for pressure vessels, acid gas-resistant boiler plates for the tank and container construction industry are also included in the grade portfolio for applications where the focus is on high pressures and temperatures.
