ArcelorMittal at the SAE Brasil Car Body Symposium 2015 in Saõ Paulo

Carmakers highlight growing use of AHSS lightweight solutions at SAE Brasil

The SAE Brasil Car Body Symposium 2015 was held at São Paulo on 10 June 2015. This second SAE Brasil Car Body is inspired by the world famous Euro Car Body event in Germany and was organised by SAE Brazil (Society of Automotive Engineers) at the IPT (Brazilian Institute of Technology) in São Paulo. ArcelorMittal was there too.

ArcelorMittal was one of the sponsors of this event and focused on the our recent investment in locally produced Usibor® hot stamping steel on our stand and seminar presentation. Car makers showcased innovative examples of how they apply AHSS in their new car models. 

Alexandre Cortez (ArcelorMittal Automotive Product Development) delivered a presentation about “Current Press Hardenable steels portfolio and future grades - Hot Stamping evolution” inside the Panel New Products and Application – Focus on Taylor properties for Press Hardening Solutions – Current Status & Future Trends.
