Truck with loader crane
In this scenario 1,125 kg of Strenx® 700 high strength steel replaces 1,500 kg of 500 MPa steel in a loader crane. In addition 1,275 kg of 500 MPa steel replaces 1,500 kg of355 MPa steel in the truck chassis. This means a weight reduction, for the upgraded parts, of 25% in the crane and 15% in the truck. In total a weight reduction of 600 kg is achieved, which increased the load capacity, resulting in higher fuel efficiency and transport efficiency.
