SSAB helps customers make tough decisions at CONEXPO-CON/AGG

From March 11 15, 2007 SSAB Oxelösund will be exhibiting in Central Hall 1, Booth No. 4168 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG  in Las Vegas, the world™s largest international trade show for the construction and construction materials industries in 2008. In addition to seeing special steels and products made from them, customers will also have an opportunity to meet experts and see a demonstration of wear prediction software.


SSAB Oxelösund is an integrated steelworks with unsurpassed expertise in developing and producing high-strength structural and abrasion-resistant steel plate.


Key products on display will be WELDOX® 1100 and 1300 the world™s strongest structural steels for mobile and truck-mounted cranes. WELDOX 1100 (yield strength 160 ksi) is currently the industry leader. WELDOX 1300, with a strength of 190 ksi, boasts the highest yield strength of any quenched and tempered steel on the market.  The ultra-strong properties of WELDOX 1300 mean applications such as cranes can be made lighter yet carry heavier loads.


HARDOX Extreme, SSAB™s most innovative product designed to provide extreme wear life under extreme conditions will also be on display. The combination of extreme wear resistance and workshop friendliness plus the fact that HARDOX Extreme is supplied in plates, allows enhanced workshop productivity and facilitates fabrication of customized wear parts.


Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet specialists from SSAB™s Conceptual Design Group and Wear Technology Group who assist customers to optimize design solutions, achieving even better products and maximizing service life, payload and overall profitability. They will present the HARDOX wear plate concept and our proprietary WearCalc prediction software, which allows comparison of sliding wear as a function of mineral composition and the abrasion resistance of the wear plate. Visitors can also meet their Regional Sales Manager and Application Engineer and see how SSAB ensures that customers get the steel plate best suited to their needs. Visitors to SSAB™s booth C-4168 will also be able to see numerous examples of SSAB™s innovative wear plate applied in practice.
