New design possibilities

Published:  18 February, 2016

Ovako.jpgCleaner steels by OVAKO are said to be opening up new design opportunities and extending service life for high performance parts. Ovako says today, more than ever, high performance components are expected to withstand higher loads over longer periods of time and the company says its clean steels can facilitate significant opportunities to rethink design solutions for improved safety, time and cost savings in a range of applications.

Ovako says IQ-Steel has minimised the size of inclusions which dramatically increases its fatigue strength in all directions, while BQ-Steel is the more traditional choice for improved fatigue strength in demanding applications. Both groups of materials can help customers in many other industries to achieve lighter, stronger, more efficient and compact component designs.
