At Armcon, Strenx® is used for the subframe that all other parts are attached to, as well as for the support ribs for
the aggregate bin and cement bin. The mixer frame is also constructed from Strenx® to allow reduced weight while
maintaining high strength.
Armcon is a long-time user of SSAB’s high-strength structural steel grades. The consistent properties of these
steels enable new manufacturing processes, like tight bending, roll forming, punching with good finishing, and
repeatable stamping for Armcon. In addition, Strenx® has a relatively low carbon equivalent giving it high strength
and ensuring good welding results with a low impact on the heat-affected zone.
According to Armcon, bending Strenx® is so much easier than with mild steel. It behaves the same for every bend.
Mild steel varies a lot and needs more setup and checking to get the bends right. This way, the change to Strenx®
steel brought Armcon considerable savings in production time.
