Freedom of design, dimensional accuracy and process reliability
An innovation of voestalpine, phs-ultraform® combines the benefits of press-hardened components with the high-quality corrosion resistance of hot-dip galvanized strip. phs-ultraform® thus allows light-weight freedom of design, dimensional accuracy and process reliability. State-of-the-art zinc coating lines and high-quality heat-treatable steel grades form the basis for the phs-ultraform® technology developed and patented by voestalpine.
Innovative market leader voestalpine
Blanks made of phs-ultraform®, including those that are laser-welded, are formed and cut to final geometries using conventional cold-forming technologies. The geometry is only hardened and finalized in hot condition. As an innovative market leader, voestalpine Stahl GmbH will also be providing phs-ultraform® for hot forming to final geometry and hardening in a single process step.
