Cam units

Our cam units are predominantly used in the automotive and automobile component supplier industries.

Standard cam units

Our standard cam units are used to punch, cut and form sheets and plates. Cam slide units make it possible to punch, cut and form sheets as they are pressed into the various shapes of auto bodies.

Special cam units

If a suitable slide unit cannot be found in our standard program, we will be glad to manufacture one that meets your specific requirements. We use standard components in our units so that we can offer the largest possible part availability to our customers.

Electrical steel

Electrical steel

isovac® is the electrical steel made by voestalpine and stands for highest energy efficiency. Electrical steel is a material used in many different forms in the construction of magnetic cores in electrical appliances and machinery. As a European market leader, voestalpine has just the right product for every customer that requires non-grain-oriented electrical steel.

Portfolio

As a full-range provider with the highest standards in the electrical industry, we supply innovative electrical steel grades as a solid foundation for energy-efficient applications such as electric motors, generators and transformers. A special focus is also on the electromobility industry, where we supply specially tailored grades in excellent quality. Electric steel strip is supplied by voestalpine directly ex works as slit strip or cut shapes from Steel Service Centers in Austria, Italy, Poland and Romania.

Commitment to quality

isovac® is the result of decades of experience at voestalpine in the production of electrical steel. The excellent property profile and superior punchability of isovac® as well as its careful utilization of natural resources make it a leading product worldwide.

We offer the highest quality in our insulation systems. In collaboration with leading European varnish manufacturers, voestalpine supplies insulating varnishes that contain no toxins, carcinogens, mutagens, formaldehyde or chromium compounds. The coatings meet all applicable EC directives (RoHS Directive 2011/65/EC).


Electrogalvanized steel strip

Electrogalvanized steel strip

Electrogalvanized steel strip for highest corrosion protection and best surface quality.

Portfolio

The electrogalvanized steel strip portfolio ranges from extremely mild to advanced highest-strength steel grades. All of these grades are characterized by high-quality appearance and excellent shell quality. The mechanical properties are equal to those of cold-rolled sheet. Electrogalvanized steel strip is available with a galvanized coating on one or both sides. The zinc coating layer thicknesses range between 2.5 and 7.5 µm.

Steel grades

  • Mild steels
  • Micro-alloyed steels
  • Phosphorus-alloyed steels
  • Bake-hardening steels
  • High-strength IF Steels
  • Dual-phase steels
  • Complex-phase steels
  • TRIP steels

Electrogalvanized steel strip
