Initiative Automotive of Salzgitter AG

Advance Notice International Suppliers Fair 2016

09/26/2016 | Initiative Automotive
The Initiative Automotive of Salzgitter AG is presenting itself to global experts from 18 to 20 October 2016 at the International Suppliers Fair (IZB). More than 820 exhibitors from almost 30 countries will be showcasing the latest industry trends and innovations on the trade fair grounds in the Allerpark in Wolfsburg, as well as the entire range of products and services revolving around automotive manufactruring. On Stand 7103 in Hall 7, the Initiative Automotive will be looking forward to numerous personal and stimulating discussions with customers, partners and interested parties.

Working in collaboration with Salzgitter Mannesmann Forschung GmbH, Salzgitter Flachstahl has developed StronSal®, a sheet steel coating with superior anti-corrosion properties containing zinc and further additives of 1 – 2 percent magnesium and aluminum by weight.

For years now, automobile manufacturing has used proven, special deep-drawn steels such as steel grade DC06 for structural components that have to stand up to very demanding forming processes. Steel analyses are used that show the lowest C content. Additions of titanium then give the steel unlimited resistance to aging for the guaranteed formability.
