phs-ultraform®

phs-ultraform® is a breakthrough in press-hardened components with galvanized surfaces. A special hot-dip galvanized boron steel was developed along with a special forming process. Components made with phs-ultraform® combine the advantages of press-hardened steel with the excellent corrosion protection of galvanized voestalpine steel strips. Complex component geometries can be achieved along with high levels of process reliability and cost efficiency. phs-ultraform® is especially suited to large component and high numbers of produced units.

Multifaceted and function-optimized tailored property parts

Complex geometries and special strength properties can be achieved by using special heat treatment processes during heating, cooling and tempering after forming and by using tailor-welded phs-ultraform® blanks. Application-specific component integration makes it possible to reduce the number of required crash-absorbing components and results in enormous light-weight savings.
Now that the indirect hot-forming process has been in practical use for five years, phs-ultraform® has become an integral part of the new series at our customers.
