In this webinar you will discover how advanced high strength steels (AHSS) can be used to achieve significant weight reduction for vehicle front seats.

Our newly ArcelorMittal S-in motion study shows that the weight of front seats can be cut by almost 20 percent while maintaining safety and performance at an affordable cost.

This is possible by using a range of innovative steels, including advanced Dual Phase and Complex Phase steels. Fortiform, ArcelorMittal’s range of 3rd Generation AHSS for cold forming, is also considered as it is particularly suitable for automotive parts with complex shapes which require crash resistance. The use of AHSS is combined with redesigning parts to take maximum advantage of the advanced mechanical characteristics of the new steels.This webinar will give seat makers inspiration about various options to achieve a compromise between weight savings and cost while maintaining safety.
