Advantages of alloyed structural steels
Alloyed structural steel is a steel grade that is produced using various alloying elements such as manganese, nickel, chromium, molybdenum or vanadium. These elements are added to steel to make it stronger, more durable and wear-resistant. Alloyed structural steel is widely used in construction, automotive, aerospace and processing industry due to its beneficial properties.
Solid and durable
One of the most important advantages of alloyed structural steel is its high strength. This steel grade can withstand heavy loads and is therefore suitable for the construction of strong and robust structures such as bridges, skyscrapers and other large projects. In addition, it can be used in the manufacture of heavy machinery and equipment that requires high tensile strength. Another advantage of alloyed structural steel is its durability. Highly resistant to corrosion and abrasion, making it ideal for use in conditions of inclement weather.. It is popularly used in the construction of marine platforms and pipelines. In addition, it is used in the automotive industry, for example, for the manufacture of engine blocks and gearbox parts.
Versatile, cost-effective and environmentally friendly
Alloyed structural steel is extremely versatile as it can be easily customized to meet individual requirements. It can be shaped, cut and welded to different shapes and sizes, making it widely applicable. This versatility is especially beneficial in the processing industry, where accuracy and customizability are critical. Although its initial cost may be higher, than that of conventional carbon steel, it represents significant savings in the long run, as its high strength and durability means less maintenance and repairs, which reduces additional costs. In addition, it has a longer service life, which means that it does not need to be replaced as often. On top of all this, alloyed structural steel is also environmentally friendly, as it is recyclable and reusable. Recycling steel scrap reduces the need to mine and process new raw materials, which can help reduce the environmental impact of steel production. In addition, the recycling process consumes less energy and causes fewer greenhouse gas emissions than the production of new steel.
Alloyed structural steel therefore offers a number of advantages over other steel grades, so it is likely to remain a critical component of modern production for years to come. thyssenkrupp Materials in Eastern Europe offers the following types of alloyed structural steels from stock:
Round bar that can be hardened in an insert, which is characterized by the combination of a tough core and a wear-resistant crust. Ideal for use in the automotive and mechanical engineering industries, such as the production of gears, axles, pins or even engines.
Improvable round bar, which is not only tough, but also excellently resistant to dynamic stress. It is also available in bred, tempered and pulled/milled versions. Typical uses: production of wrenches, shaft-like parts, engines.
Flat spring steel, the main advantage of which is that it flexibly changes shape under the influence of loads, and then, after the load is removed, it regains its original shape. For this reason, it is also perfect for the production of sheet, plate, spiral springs, torsion leaf springs for trucks and plate springs.
Cast round rod, which is distinguished from its counterparts primarily by its good thermal conductivity and vibration damping ability. Its usability is extremely wide, but most of the time it is used for the production of various automotive and mechanical engineering parts, such as pistons, cylinder heads, brake drums, engine compartments.
