SSAB steel builds better container

Ellermann

Container manufacturer Ellermann wanted to make containers in the same size as before but with more load capacity. Thanks to SSAB’s high strength steel their vision has become reality.

The challenge

The German company previously used aluminum to make its containers, but needed a material that was stronger and lighter.

The solution

Ellermann now uses wear steel from SSAB for the floor and sidewalls of its containers. This has increased the load space from forty cubic meters to forty-two. A further bonus is that the containers are now substantially lighter, which delivers weight benefits.

“Thanks to the new design we can take an extra 1.5 tons weight per container and 3 tons on a 20-ton load. That represents a 15 percent increase in load capacity,” says Tobias Ellermann, president of Ellermann GmbH.

“The containers are now substantially lighter”

Customer benefits

In addition to increased load space, the new containers are also much stronger than the old ones. The stabilizing support beams that once were placed around a container are no longer needed because the material is sufficiently strong in itself.
