Fast Lane: ArcelorMittal’s sampling and pre-serial production service

ArcelorMittal’s new Fast Lane service offers carmakers the opportunity to quickly obtain automotive steel samples at any stage of the new vehicle development process. The service is designed to deliver material within very short lead times. Nearly all products and coatings in ArcelorMittal’s Automotive catalogue are available – and they can be shipped almost anywhere in the world.

Fast Lane completes ArcelorMittal’s comprehensive service offer for carmakers. This service offer ranges from advanced projects at the start of the car design cycle, and covers detailed information about material properties, material data cards, digital simulation support, generic steel solutions, life cycle analysis (LCA) and other added value services which continue through to serial production.

With Fast Lane, customers can receive material with short lead time to support new vehicle development phases. This offer includes provision of product samples, pre-serial production services, prototyping support, and the backup of ArcelorMittal’s dedicated team.

Fast Lane offers OEMs state-of-the art technology and a dedicated supply of samples and small volumes of ArcelorMittal’s automotive steels from our European mills. We can supply almost every material in ArcelorMittal’s automotive catalogue in a wide range of formats and dimensions.

"ArcelorMittal’s highly skilled Fast Lane team has extensive experience in supporting our automotive and industrial customers. They can suggest suitable materials, provide quotations, process orders, and quickly deliver steel samples or larger volumes for prototyping and pre-serial production. If the team cannot answer your questions immediately, they can get additional support from ArcelorMittal’s Customer Technical Support (CTS) and Early Vendor Involvement (EVI) teams, and ArcelorMittal Global R&D."


Support for product validation, prototyping, and pre-serial production


Close cooperation between the mills in the ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products network and ArcelorMittal Downstream Solutions is key to the success of Fast Lane. Together we can quickly provide material to meet to customer requests.

The material can be used for:

  • Product validation: material approvals, tests to validate product behaviour such as formability (stamping, bending, roll forming), joining (welding, bonding) and in-use properties (crash behaviour, fatigue)
  • Prototyping: production of first batch of parts, test of different configurations and designs
  • Pre-serial production: support to manufacturing of tools, set-up of cutting and stamping tools
  • Production of small batch of parts: spare parts or end-of-life formats


Customers use ArcelorMittal samples to assess products and perform pre-serial production testing and prototyping

Dedicated stock, various formats

The Fast Lane team maintain a large and dedicated stock of materials from our Automotive catalogue. The stock is updated on a regular basis. This saves customers precious time during project development.

  • Sheets (A4 samples and rectangular blanks)
  • Laser cut shaped blanks
  • Slit coils
