SSAB Swedish Steel AB

Hardox wear plate, Weldox high-strength structural steel plate Toolox pre-hardened tool and machine steel are available up to a plate thickness of 160 mm depending on hardness grade. For mobile machines the payload to weight (pl/w) ratio reflects mechanical efficiency. But increasing machine size means greater me-chanical forces and production through-put – and this leads both to greater wear and to a demand for longer component service life to improve economy and uptime. SSAB has responded by investing heavily in quenching, tempering and rolling mill equipment and procedures to produce thicker, through-hardened plate of consistently high quality. By increasing the maximum plate thickness for Hardox®, Weldox® and Toolox®, SSAB is supporting the push for more efficient machines with greater output.
