Introduction to Advanced High Strength Steels - Grades
Advanced High Strength Steels that exhibit high strength and enhanced formability are being offered around the world. These steels have the potential to effect cost and weight savings while improving performance.
The increased formability allows for greater part complexity, which leads to fewer individual parts (cost savings) and more manufacturing flexibility. Fewer parts mean less welding (cost and cycle-time savings) and weld flanges (mass and weight savings). Depending on design, the higher strength can translate into better fatigue and crash performance, while maintaining or even reducing thickness.
