What’s the material that is on the forefront of innovation in the automobile industry? If you guessed aluminum or composite steels, you guessed wrong. When it comes to increasing fuel efficiency, quality, affordability, and durability, no material has made more of a difference than Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) and Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS). [...]
What are Press-Hardened Steels (PHS)? Press-Hardened Steels are Boron added (.001%-.005%) Carbon /Manganese steels that have been in use since the mid 1980’s for automotive body in white construction. These steels are also known as HF or Hot Formed Steel. Press Hardened Steel or Hot Formed Steels undergo a unique manufacturing process where [...]

Luis Villaseñor, Director of Operations for National Material of Mexico, on NMM’s Red Bud steel slitting line which incorporates precision large arbor technology that was specially designed to address the unique demands of slitting these ultra-high tensile materials such as advanced high strength steel and aluminum. In addition, the system includes “hands free” [...]
Advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are complex materials that are revolutionizing the auto industry. Each step of the process – the various microstructures and chemical compositions – are a result of a carefully controlled heating and cooling process. During the process, several strengthening mechanisms are employed to achieve a spectrum of toughness, strength, and fatigue [...]
Steel manufacturing is a BIG job producing a very large, heavy final product. Many protocols are taken to ensure the safety of the factory workers including the use of the Lankhorst roll-stop system. This system was developed back in 2005 and is one of the most popular coil storage systems in the steel industry. [...]
