THE NEEDS of the market
Nowadays, steel is one of the strongest materials in the world with excellent characteristics in terms of design flexibility in automotive field, energy saving in production process and low emissions during the foundry casting.
Steel has been improved continuously, reaching new technical performance together with wheeled vehicles development.
Keeping pace with the challenges in terms of safe, cutting – down costs and environmental protection.
The TWIP Steel (Twinning Induced Plasticity Steel) is one of the light-weight steels: combinations between high strength with high stretchability.
A large usage of mechanical components in TWIP steel is typical in automotive industry. In this field, a continue research of light-weight parts found in the TWIP steel an useful ally, with the further advantage of increasing safety performances with its own technical characteristics.
The TWIP steel, as all others AHSS steels, has shown some limitations during the welding and cutting process.
