Bauma 2019 is coming soon. ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and Industeel will put in the spotlight Amstrong® Ultra, Relia® and Creusabro®, their ultra-high strength and wear-resistant steels for building the mechanical equipments of the future. ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products will also be at the event, presenting a new initiative on solutions in sheet piles.
The best high strength steels for mechanical equipments
Construction and mining equipment require steels with excellent strength and toughness, and extra abrasion resistance for the parts in soil.ArcelorMittal’s high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels offer significant advantages for structural applications, including weight reductions. Three of our main products for mechanical equipments will be showcased in hall 6, stand 534 during Bauma, through samples, brochures and videos.
Amstrong® Ultra is a new range of high strength steels for structural parts in transport, yellow and green goods, lifting and mechanical engineering industries. Amstrong® Ultra enables manufacturers reducing steel thickness and weight in mobile equipment.
Geert Van Heirseele, product manager, explains “Many companies think that the hardest high-strength steels are difficult to process. At Bauma, we will prove them that the latest Amstrong® Ultra generations are easy to cut, easy to bend and easy to weld. We are convinced they will open the door for new and innovative applications.”
Relia® is the ArcelorMittal’s range of high hardness, low-alloyed martensitic steels, offering outstanding resistance to abrasion, while offering a significant weight reduction. Principal application areas include construction and earthmoving, mining and mineral processing, demolition, waste and recycling.
This year, the stand will feature real samples and videos, focusing on the enhanced processing capabilities of the steel in terms of bending, cutting and welding.
On top of this, Creusabro® will also be showcased at Bauma. Creusabro® is an advanced impact and abrasion resistant steel, which strongly improves wear resistance in service by a surface hardening effect of about +70 HB. Since many years, Creusabro® abrasion resistant steels provide optimal solutions that translate into major savings in fabrication and maintenance costs, increased productivity and enhanced machine performance.
Think steel first! A new initiative on solutions in sheet piles
Whether it be protecting people and land from flooding, or whether it be building bridges or quay walls to ensure smooth mobility and transportation: steel sheet piles from ArcelorMittal offer smart and efficient solutions - easy and fast to install, long-lasting and sustainable over the entire life cycle of the infrastructure. At Bauma 2019, ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling will launch its new initiative ArcelorMittal Solutions - Think steel first!, unveiling the true potential of steel sheet piling solutions to the construction business, as announced on 29 January at a Bauma media event in Munich.
Steel is essential to the modern world. Strong, flexible, adaptable as well as fully reusable and recyclable, it does not only contribute to the circular economy, but it is the material of choice for sustainable construction solutions in today’s world. Focused around 4 application domains, ArcelorMittal's unique sheet piling solutions offer exceptional benefits that help improve everyday life and ensure quick, cost-effective and environment friendly completion of the construction projects.
During the trade fair in April, ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products will showcase its sheet piling solutions in hall C5, stand 338.
Bauma is the world’s leading sector event for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. With a total exhibition space of 605,000 square meters, Bauma is also the largest trade show in the world. In 2016 Bauma broke all previous records, attracting a total of 3423 exhibitors (63% from abroad), and 580,000 visitors (+9% vs 2013) from over 200 countries. Bauma takes place every three years in Munich.
