Currently, lightweight materials used in automobiles include high-strength steel
, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy, plastic and composites, carbon fiber and so forth.
Tata Steel has introduced a unique high-strength steel
product which will enable automotive manufacturers to create lighter components and give relatively complex shapes.
Feature high-strength steel
construction with a close center of gravity designed to use the full lifting capacity of the machine.
Grapples feature standard 360-degree rotation, high-strength steel
construction, high-pressure hydraulic components and sizes from .
Gears are hardened or case-hardened steel; input/output shafts are high-strength steel
By using extra high-strength steel
we were able to remove a significant amount of material, thereby reducing overall weight," said Mats Bergman, technical director at Finnveden's Sheet Metal Components business area.
The high-strength steel
knob withstands greater shear loads, accelerating changeover of large and/or vertically positioned tools.
Limitations at the site prompted such foundation innovations as high-strength steel
and grout mini-caissons in places where conventional caissons could not be used.
Eighteen bonded nanotube sheets produced a material that is stronger than sheets of equal weight made of Mylar, of high-strength steel
, or of most aluminum alloys, says Baughman.
Over the past few years, there has been a tremendous growth in the amount of advanced high-strength steel
and ultra high-strength steel
in the auto industry driven primarily by a need to achieve lighter weight structures without sacrificing strength.
The rollers are suspended by high-strength steel
leaf springs to reduce vibration and improve operator comfort.
Though current Chrysler vehicles use approximately 30% high-strength steel
in their structures, Grabowski says this will increase to more than 60% over the next five years.
