XCMG, one of China’s biggest construction machinery manufacturers, is a long standing customer of SSAB. They recently manufactured the biggest wheel loader bucket in China, with a capacity of 17 m3. Use of Hardox plate and Strenx performance steel has increased the overall bucket lifetime by 70%.
SSAB’s Shape portfolio allows customers to benefit from SSAB’s market-leading know-how, while saving time and reducing workload through the use of a prefabricated assembly kit. One customer reaping the rewards of the Shape offering is U.K. trailer manufacturer Montracon.
