ArcelorMittal – A new generation of high-strength, press hardenable steel (PHS) grades are coming to the automotive market. As well bringing significant weight savings in vehicle structures, particularly on crash applications, the new PHS grades enable OEMs to create parts with more complex geometries.
In this webinar, we explored how the very high mechanical properties of new PHS grades can be integrated into multi-material parts to reduce the need for reinforcements.
The presentation demonstrated how this can lead to significant mass reductions without compromising the vehicle’s impressive safety performance.
