ArcelorMittal at Bauma
11-17 April 2016, München (Germany)
ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and Industeel introduced for the first time Amstrong® Ultra and Relia®, their new ranges of ultra-high strength and wear-resistant steels for building the mechanical equipments of the future.
Amstrong® Ultra is a new range of high strength steels for structural parts in transport, yellow and green goods, lifting and mechanical engineering industries. Amstrong® Ultra enables manufacturers reducing steel thickness and weight in mobile equipment.
Relia® is the ArcelorMittal’s range of high hardness, low-alloyed martensitic steels, offering outstanding resistance to abrasion – typically three to six times higher than classical construction steels in the 355 MPa range, while offering a significant weight reduction. Principal applications areas include construction and earthmoving, mining and mineral processing, demolition, waste and recycling.
Yves Boudart, sales director of Industeel, explains “Weight savings and longer lasting components are essential to modern mechanical engineering industries to improve performance and reduce operation costs. Amstrong® Ultra and Relia® offer the full package solution that is expected from our customers, no matter how the product was produced as a hot-rolled strip or a quarto plate”.
The two companies showcased their products through 4 exhibits:
- An innovative boom design made of Amstrong® Ultra 700MC light-gauge material, created by CMC which allowed building a 26 m aerial platform mounted on a light truck
- A piece of a tipper body made of Relia® 400. Thanks to its wear resistance and good formability Relia® 400 is an excellent choice for tipper bodies
- A crane boom Schnittmodell Knickarm made by Palfinger AG of Amstrong® Ultra 700MCL up to S1300MC
- A U-shaped press brake component made of 12 mm Relia® 450 Premium wear resistant steel
ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products welcomed visitors accompanied by ArcelorMittal CLN Distribuzione Italia, the new Italian point of reference for the distribution of its flat products, in particular in yellow and green goods industries.
