Stahlbrücke

Heavy plates made of thermomechanically rolled fine-grained structural steel.

alform® steels are thermomechanically rolled fine-grained structural steels with excellent weldability, toughness and cold-forming behavior, which makes them extremely versatile.

Show more

Heavy plates made of thermomechanically rolled fine-grained structural steel.

We supply standard and high-strength, thermomechanically rolled, fine-grained steels of the highest quality with minimum yield strengths ranging from 355 355 MPa to 700 MPa.

As a special grade of voestalpine steel, alform® is primarily used in applications such as steel structures, bridges, pressure pipes, vehicles and cranes.

Our thermomechanically rolled fine-grained steels are characterized by a high degree of toughness and excellent weldability. The low degree of cold cracking and high degree of toughness in the welding seam result in the highest safety standards in welded structures.

Utilization of the higher yield strength of high-strength fine-grained steels (alform plate 420 M, 460M, 500 M and 550 M) as opposed to conventional structural steels results in lower cross-sections. This leads to cost savings in lower component weights and reduced expenditures for transports, assembly and foundations as well as savings in component manufacturing, especially during welding.

High-strength plates

High-strength heavy plates made by voestalpine of fine-grained steels can have a minimum yield strength of up to 700 MPa. The special ultra-high-strength grades achieve a yield strength of up to 1100 MPa.

Show more

High-strength plates

Higher stress

Machines and buildings are becoming bigger and bigger. When the size of a component is doubled in length, width and height, the weight increases by a factor of 8, while the load-bearing cross-sectional surface area only increases by a factor of 4. This increases the stress, or the weight in relation to the cross-sectional surface area, by a factor of two. High-strength steels can absorb these higher stresses, even when the component weight is reduced.

Concrete advantages

The lower weight of high-strength and ultra-high-strength heavy plates saves costs: Input material quantities, transport costs, assembly and foundation costs are reduced substantially. Costs are also saved during further processing. Thanks to favorable weldability, work can be completed more quickly and efficiently. Significantly reduced quantities of welding consumables are required, and weld seam testing is made easier.

Our program

High-strength heavy plates are available as fine-grained steels with a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa. Ultra-high-strength heavy plates are available as voestalpine special grades at 900, 960 and 1100 MPa.

Living continuous development of new products to meet more stringent requirements, we are able to provide prequalified arctic steel for extremely low temperatures. Using toughcore® TMCP plates with extreme high toughness, you are able to increase the level of safety for your offshore structure up to 140 mm thickness.

High-quality plates for efficient electric power generation

Larger monopiles require higher unit weights in cylindrical and tapered pipe lengths. We achieve these weights by welding together two to three plates and call the new unit an XL plate. This highly efficient and innovative welding technique utilizes a four-wire submerged arc welding system capable of producing up to 60-ton unit weights. 

These heavy units meet the growing requirements of offshore wind parks.

voestalpine Qualitätsbleche für die effiziente Stromerzeugung

High-strength plates

As structures and machines become larger, the stresses in the components increase. High-strength steels with minimum yield strengths of 700 MPa or even higher up to 1100 MPa are capable of supporting these higher stresses and simultaneously lead to a decrease in the weight of structural members.

Thermomechanically rolled high-strength fine-grained steels combine excellent toughness with a very low carbon content and the low carbon equivalent and for an optimized weldability.

Shipbuilding steel plates

Our shipbuilding steel plates in normal and high-strength grades are used in offshore applications, platform  superstructures and for special ships in the oil and gas industries, such as floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO) and even stainless steel clad plates for icebreakers. 

We offer a wide range of dimensions and grades with best workability for ship manufacture, especially for welding: steel grades up to FH 36 and plates up to 140 mm thick and 3,950 mm wide. High-strength shipbuilding plates are certified e.g. by ABS in FQ70 up to 101.6 mm (4").

They are the key to efficient steel structures and provide potentially high savings in welding and maintenance. Industryspecific material and manufacturing expertise, comprehensive preprocessing possibilities, reliability and relationships based on trust make us a trusted partner to the European steel construction industry.

We supply higher strength & lighter weight

alform® heavy plates find their applications wherever high workability and weldability coupled with high strength and weight savings are in demand. Utilization of the higher yield strength of high-strength fine-grained steels as opposed to conventional structural steels results in lower cross-sections. This leads on the one hand to cost savings in lower component weights as well as reduced expenditures for transports, assembly, foundations, component manufacturing, especially in welding as a result of minimized seam cross-sections.

Elimination of paint coating and maintenance

The alloying of small amounts of phosphorus, copper, nickel, chromium or molybdenum leads to the formation of a protective layer on weather-resistant steel outdoors. This layer protects the steel from further corrosion. Weather-resistant structural steels thus provide cost advantages as no anti-corrosion coating or maintenance required of the protective coating is required.
