Engineered to shorten your time-to-market

For several decades, companies have taken advantage of SSAB’s local technical expertise when designing, forming, joining and EcoUpgrading their products with our advanced high strength steels (AHSS).

Now, SSAB also offers project management and execution to go from your product idea all the way to virtual and physical prototyping and preparation for serial production. These comprehensive development services shorten your product cycle, reducing costs, reducing time-to-market, and enabling accelerated innovation in your company — since you can now focus on more valuable tasks, such as future product ideas.

Now, SSAB also offers project management and execution from the idea up to the virtual and physical prototyping, which will shorten your product development cycle, reduce costs and speed the innovation process into your company.

Speed up your product development and boost competitiveness through services including:

  • Turn-key projects of functional designs with advanced high strength steels
  • Agile and robust product development by combining design and manufacturing experts with computer simulations (CAD, FEM tools)
  • Reverse engineering with laser scanning and optimization of the wear life of components based by DEM (Discrete Element Method) simulations
  • Evaluation of welded structures, writing of the Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) and implementation of post weld treatments (HFMI)
  • Design and fabrication of storing and welding jigs
  • Determination of the actual loads and fill factor of your equipment with DEM
  • Manufacturing and assembly CAD drawings for seamless production

Beginning with the OEM’s perspective, SSAB Product Development and Engineering works to find potential product portfolio improvements. Then, specialist engineers are allocated to support in the product development process. The early stage cooperation and unique SSAB development methods give a head start that reduces time-to-market – as well as costs.

SSAB Product Development and Engineering

Speed up your product development and boost competitiveness through SSAB services

We provide the fastest and best development support available for steel applications.

Lean design process:
We provide the fastest and best development support available for steel applications. SSAB engineering team works combining specialists in design with Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS),production specialists and CAD designers in a lean way. Work is done in a multi expertise team. This leads to high turnover of product design iterations

Design for production:
All design proposals are thought to be efficiently and robustly produced

Implementation of new technologies aimed to maximize the properties of the AHSS:
Post welding treatments like HFMI, DEM simulations, and other tools are incorporated from the design phase.

Smart and smooth enhancing of the SSAB technical offer
As a customer, you have access to on-site tech support, expert advice in structural design, forming, joining, production efficiency, as well as opportunities to outsource the supply of parts and kits. Now, SSAB offers the possibility to manage the full project, taking your product from the conceptual design to the manufacturing drawings in a very short time.
