Industry Trailers and body builders

In this case 5,500 kg of Hardox® 450 replace 7,500 kg of S700MC steel in a side tipper. In addition 1,050 kg of Strenx® 960 steel replace 1,500 kg of S500 steel in the chassis. This means a weight reduction, for the upgraded parts, of up to 30 %. In total a weight reduction of 2,450 kg, which increased the load capacity, resulting in higher fuel efficiency and transport efficiency.
