Hot-rolled steel strip

Hot-rolled steel strip

Tailored to the specific needs of the customer, the product portfolio ranges from mild steels to meet the highest forming requirements to ultra-high-strength steels for the most stringent applications.

Portfolio

To meet every customer requirement we supply hot-rolled steel strip in widths up to 1,750 mm and thicknesses up to 20 mm. Our products are available in both pickled and unpickled condition, as slit or wide strip in coils. Even slit steel strip or cut shapes are possible. Hot-rolled steels made by voestalpine are supplied in a wide range of grades and qualities. A variety of alloys and rolling programs provide our customers with just the right steel for their specific applications.

Steel grades

  • Mild steels
  • Structural steels
  • Micro-alloyed steels (alform® steels)
  • Case-hardening and heat-treatable steels
  • Multi-phase and martensitic steels
  • Pole and rim steels
  • Enameling steels
  • Steels for gas cylinders
  • Weather-resistant structural steels
  • Linepipe steels

Hot-rolled steel strip 

  • Available in pickled and unpickled condition 
  • Excellent suitability to forming processes 
  • Excellent weldability 
  • Customer-specific fulfillment of mechanical properties 
  • Narrowest thickness and width tolerances guaranteed 
  • Surface roughness adjustable in exact compliance with customer requirements

Cold-rolled steel strip

Cold-rolled steel strip

Cold-rolled steel strips made by voestalpine shine with the best surface appearance. Our continuous production process and modern H2 annealing technology allow the manufacture of high-quality cold-rolled steel strip with narrow thickness tolerances.

Portfolio

The comprehensive steel grade program makes cold-rolled steel strip a true all-round material that can be used in applications from simple sections to complex deep-drawn parts. Cold-rolled steel strip is used in the household appliance industry (e.g. for washing machines, dishwashers, clothes dryers, refrigerators, stoves, hot-water boilers), radiator industry, automotive industry (for auto body parts in less corrosive environments), packaging industry and in the tube and section industry.

Steel grades

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

Cold-rolled steel strip 

  • Excellent surface quality 
  • Excellent cold formability 
  • Highly uniform mechanical properties 
  • Narrow thickness tolerances thanks to the most modern production technologies

Hot-dip galvanized steel strip

Hot-dip galvanized steel strip

Hot-dip galvanized steel strip is characterized by its high degree of corrosion resistance, excellent working properties and a wide spectrum of applications.

Portfolio

Tailored to your specific needs, our portfolio ranges from extremely mild to advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) grades and includes widths up to 1,730 mm and thicknesses ranging between 0.5 mm and 3.5 mm. All hot-dip galvanized products of voestalpine have one thing in common: The best processing characteristics and highest degree of corrosion protection. Special features include Galvannealed and ZincMagnesium hot-dip galvanized steel strip.

Steel grades

  • Mild steels for cold forming
  • Structural steels
  • Micro-alloyed steels
  • Bake-hardening steels
  • Higher-strength IF steels
  • Dual-phase steels
  • Complex-phase steels
  • TRIP steels
  • Press-hardening steels for hot forming (phs-ultraform)

Surfaces

  • Surface types ranging from standard A surface to high-end C surface properties
  • Adjustment of defined strip roughness possible
  • Post-treatment to protect against the formation of white rust: wide variety of oils, chromium-free passivation, anti-finger-print system or micro-phosphating

Different types of hot-dip galvanized steel strip 

  • Conventional hot-dip galvanized steel strip (Z) with zinc coating thicknesses ranging from Z70 to Z600 
  • Hot-dip galvanized steel strip galvannealed with zinc-iron coating (ZF) allows coating thicknesses ranging from ZF70 to ZF140. 
  • Hot-dip zinc-magnesium galvanized steel strip (ZM); ZM90–ZM200

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.
