Pioneer and innovation leader
voestalpine is a pioneer in the field of advanced high-strength steels (ahss) for lightweight automotive design. For more than 20 years, we have been advancing the development of these high-end materials with carefully selected chemical compositions and multi-phase microstructures attained by controlled heating and cooling processes. The basis for these outstanding solutions is the interaction of material expertise, process know-how and manufacturing excellence from a single source.
Partner in serial production
voestalpine ist nicht nur Premium-Stahllieferant. Companies in the business unit Automotive Components Specializing in cold forming, efficient serial production of structural components and exposed parts, assemblies and surface treatments.
Just the right steel for every application
The ahss steels of voestalpine have been precisely developed to meet the specific requirements of the automotive industry. The product portfolio guarantees solutions for every application based on specified properties (yield strength, total elongation, high resistance to edge cracking, suitability for bending and deep-drawing operations). Efficiency in component production is the third criterion that steel developers always keep in mind. The product portfolio includes the following:
