A product range with so many options – thyssenkrupp’s dual-phase steels can be used in many ways.
Many criteria must be met if a company wants to be successful in the automotive industry, such as being environmentally friendly, conserving raw materials, and keeping costs low at all times. Yet demands placed on safety and comfort are rising. But it is not difficult to design lighter vehicles and make them affordable, as the Product Management area in thyssenkrupp’s Steel division has oriented its product range for cold-rolled dual-phase steels more toward the needs of customers and added new grades.
New grades that for example can absorb more energy in the event of a crash, and display improved deformation resistance, or possess enhanced cold-rolling properties. In this way steel is giving customers more freedom in designing their components. The portfolio includes the full spectrum of the upper-range manufacturing classes (500–1,200 MPa), attractive characteristics for crash-relevant components, and new freedoms in the cold rolling of high-strength structural components. Everything is available worldwide in the recognized VDA standard.
Our project engineers in Customer Service and the specialists from Materials Development and Application Technology already offer our customers extensive support in selecting materials in order to ensure processing runs smoothly during production. This allows potential to be leveraged in the best possible way.
