SSAB, market leader in quenched and tempered steel and in the high strength steel with min 700mPA yield, will participate in SteelFab 2019 to exhibit its wide range of products for the heavy transport and raw material handling industries such as construction and mining. Hardox®500Tuf for the tipper industry, Hardox® 600 with increased bendability to offer more applications to the mining industry, cement factories and quarries and Hardox® Hitemp, a unique product that can withstand high temperatures – will be on display.
Unique solutions for each market segment
“SSAB products have unique solutions for each market segment considering their business dynamics. In Heavy Transport, today the most important issue, is to increase the payload capacity without compromising the strength and at the same time to reduce the fuel consumption as much as possible. For this segment, we offer our customers different grades and thicknesses of Hardox® wear plates in the tipper body and Strenx® performance steel in the chassis.
For raw material handling customers, the main issue is wearing of the equipment and the unexpected stops in the machines due to material failure. SSAB offers the highest wear resistant steels to our customers depending on the application. The hardness of the steel varies between 400HB and 600HB so that our customers can control the wearing of the machine and avoid the unexpected stops thanks to the excellent material properties of Hardox® wear plate.” says Ozgur Yalcin, Area Sales Manager, Middle East, at SSAB.
“Our new introductions have increased our market penetration further,” he added. “Hardox 500Tuf, now in the market, is opening new design possibilities for our customers. The Hardox® 600 material offers unparalleled bendability to the mining industry, cement factories, crushers and quarries so they can use the Hardox®600 in a wider range of applications. The other product called Hardox® Hitemp for high temperature application has also been successfully promoted in the market.”
Strong commitment to the Middle East markets
“Our focus on the Middle East markets is testified by our strong presence in the region. SSAB has its own qualified engineers in the market who know the Hardox® and Strenx® products and their applications. We have a wide range of stock in the Hamriyah free zone and we can deliver within a maximum period of 48 hours from our inventory in normal conditions.” saysOzgur Yalcin. “We are constantly innovating and researching to develop new steel grades that offer better solutions. We collaborate with our customers to manufacture lighter and stronger products that promote their profitability and sustainability for future generations.”
