Car designers and manufacturers have at times had to contend with the limitations of advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) regarding edge ductility, bendability and springback. SSAB has combined innovative forming techniques with our cutting-edge steels available in tensile strengths of up to 1700 MPa. These forming techniques are easy to apply and open up new possibilities for designers to use high-strength steels to create parts in complex shapes. Our Knowledge Service Centers are on hand to help.
