Hardox® wear steel in sheet format – the right choice for Fuhrmann
The option of using Hardox® steel in sheet form has given Fuhrmann a high yield in the production of its side walls. The Hardox® wear sheets are available in thicknesses that range from 0.8 mm (0.032”) up to 8.0 mm (0.315”) and in lengths up to 16,000 mm (629.9 “). The sheet steel is rolled to exacting tolerances for thickness and flatness and a high surface finish, which contributes to reliable workshop performance and quality welds.
As an added bonus of Hardox® wear sheet, the smooth surface makes a perfect base for high-quality striping or painting of logotypes and other messages.
