  • ArcelorMittal enlarges and enriches its offer

Visit us at Intermat 2018

At Intermat 2018, in Hall 2, stand B5, ArcelorMittal will confirm its ambitions in the field of high strength and wear-resistant steels. Flat and Long Products business divisions, as well as Industeel, will join forces and introduce their latest innovations. With an extended portfolio, new and innovative services, backed by an unbeatable geographical footprint, the company is becoming a key player in steel for cranes, transportation, yellow and green goods, mechanical engineering and sheet piling.

An extended range for ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products

The range has been extended with three new grades, Amstrong® Ultra 700MCL, 900MCL and 960MCL. This means more opportunities for the customers to develop innovative cranes which reach further and lift heavier load, concrete pumps which larger range, lighter and less fuel consuming trucks’ chassis and trailers. The new grades benefit from guaranteed mechanical properties including toughness in both the rolling and the transverse directions, good surface characteristics, flatness, bendability, weldability and exceptional durability.

As Geert Van Heirseele, Amstrong® product manager, points out, “The new Amstrong Ultra 700MCL is particularly suitable in fatigue exposed, multidirectional highly loaded applications as those of truck mounted cranes”.

One of the most outstanding features of the Amstrong® range is its dimensional feasibility, with steel grades available in widths up to 2000 mm and even more, an additional opportunity to reduce costs in terms of stock optimization, productivity of the cutting line and reduction of the number of welds.

Since January 2018, an Amstrong® cost reduction calculator is available to make it easier for the customer to choose which product for which application.

On top of this, ArcelorMittal Global R&D has created in 2017 a unique fatigue testing methodology to help customers choose the most suitable high strength steel grade and component processing for their application. The new testing methodology saves crane manufacturers time and money as it reproduces the same loading conditions as fatigue testing which is normally performed with full-size prototypes.

Geert Van Heirseele concludes, “with more than 400 production sites, service centres and sales agencies in Europe, customers have an easy access to the Amstrong® range and associated services wherever they are located.”

Industeel presents Relia®, for minimum wear and maximum payload

Relia® is an innovative range of high hardness, low-alloyed martensitic steels, offering outstanding resistance to wear and abrasion. Relia® grades are available in 3 nominal hardness levels 400, 450 and 500 HBW obtained through intense water quenching during manufacturing.

Principal applications include construction and earthmoving, mining and mineral processing, demolition, waste and recycling, where equipment is required to withstand abrasive environments in a reliable, durable and efficient way. Despite their extreme hardness, the properties of Relia® plates are specifically designed for an improved workability including cutting, forming, drilling and welding to achieve any kind of applications and designs.

ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products: wider, lighter and stronger

ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling presents the new AZ®-800 steel sheet pile generation, a more cost-efficient, extra-wide sheet pile range, setting the benchmark in sheet piling and contributing to an additional value creation for our customers.

Continuous research and development as well as close cooperation with customers for sheet piling solutions has led to the industrialisation of this optimised hot-rolled steel sheet pile range. Compared to the standard AZ®-700 range, further 10% weight savings and 14% faster execution times can be achieved, due to the increased width of the AZ®-800 sheet piles and the least number of elements required.

The new range of wider sheet piles is produced in the ArcelorMittal mill in Luxembourg which has a history of over 100 years in sheet pile production. The sheet piles are made from 100% recycled steel that can be re-used and recycled. All sheet piles from ArcelorMittal are covered by an Environmental Product Declaration.

About Intermat

INTERMAT, the international exhibition for construction and infrastructure hosts 183,000 visitors and 1,500 exhibitors presenting an offer of equipment, materials and solutions for civil engineering and structural building works.

The construction trade show has adjusted its sector organisation to respond to visitor expectations and arranged the event around 4 activity sectors for optimal clarity : Earthmoving & Demolition, Roads & Minerals & Foundations, Buildings & Concrete Sector and Lifting, Handling & Transportation.
