Strenx® performance steel can make your products stronger, lighter, safer, more competitive and more sustainable. We call it performance steel, because it adds performance beyond ordinary structural steel.
Strenx® steel has extremely consistent properties, ensuring precision and efficiency in the workshop.
If you think all steel is basically the same, Strenx® performance steel will change your thinking. Strong and reliable from surface to core, Strenx® steel features exceptional surface quality as well as impressive thickness and flatness tolerances verified by the Strenx® guarantees.
The steel’s properties — yield and tensile strength, bending performance, impact toughness — are carefully tested to ensure reliability and consistency in every delivery.
Gain access to engineering, prefabrication and logistics services to improve your business.
As a Strenx® steel customer you’ll gain access to SSAB Shape, a service that provides engineering, prefabrication and logistics services to complement your own resources so you can improve total production efficiency and economy. You get access to a network of service centers equipped with advanced machinery for the prefabrication of Strenx® steel. You can even have semi-finished parts and ready-to-assemble kits delivered just in time to your production lines.
Strenx® steel plate, strip and tubes can be processed in lengths in excess of 20 meters and with bending forces of more than 4,000 tonnes. Using the high-end equipment at SSAB Shape centers makes perfect business sense. You gain access to production capacity without investing in new machinery for in-house production, enabling you to cut lead times.
SSAB's top tips for designing with advanced high-strength steel
How to design with advanced high-strength steel for stronger, lighter and safer steel solutions.
Think smart, and think ahead
Because plates made from advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) are less thick but subjected to higher stress levels than conventional steels, the use of this steel places an increased focus on design. The design can literally make — or break — the potential of a long-lasting product.
Modern technology makes it possible to develop new products in a shorter time. Computer-based tools have speeded the process from concept to finished product. Still, all simulations must be verified using the appropriate methods to ensure correct results.
Particularly important points to consider when using AHSS include:
Choice of material
Welding and other workshop techniques
