Structural Steel for Lifting and Advanced Structures

SSAB offers its Strenx 1100 Plus strip steel. "This hot-rolled, high-strength steel features unique weld properties and is designed to deliver enhanced welding and bending performance. Advances in improved weld seam strength for strip steel contribute to lighter, yet stronger equipment with increased performance in the lifting and transportation sectors," said a company spokesperson.

"Traditionally, weld seams can represent weak links in the highest grades of structural steels. But with Strenx 1100 Plus, such weld weaknesses are virtually eliminated because the strength, elongation and impact toughness properties of the welded area meet the minimum guarantees of the base material," continued the spokesperson. "The optimal combination of strength and toughness of the welded and heat-affected area offers a major benefit to the design engineering process: the design can be based on the same minimum static strength for the entire application, depending on the design rules."

Strenx 1100 Plus is suitable for lifting equipment, such as cranes, as well as lighter transportation solutions and advanced structures that require matching strength in the welds. "It actually has higher strength than in the Strenx 1100 base material. This translates into cranes that reach higher, trailers that carry more payload, and trucks that use less fuel and emit less CO2," said the spokesperson.
