The automotive industry faces two major challenges today: emissions reduction and improvement of safety standards. Reducing vehicle weight by using lighter materials is an obvious way to cut emissions, but steel offers unbeatable crash protection. ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks answers both these demands with one innovative solution.
Tailored Blanks allow the use of optimal steel specifications, including ultra-high strength steel and Usibor® 1500 AS*. By welding steel sheets together, we produce materials that fit the needs. Strength is concentrated where it is most needed for crash resistance and overall material thickness is reduced, decreasing weight and emissions. Meanwhile, manufacturing, material and transport costs are reduced, adding to your profits.
ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks is supported by ArcelorMittal’s world-class R&D and wide distribution network. We work closely with our customers to optimise design, supply and cost efficiency. *AS = Aluminium Silicon
