Transverse control arm

SZBS800 - Transverse control arm

With its SZBS800 and SZBS600 grades, Salzgitter Flachstahl has developed two innovative bainitic hot-rolled steels which belong to the group of complex-phase steels. These materials are predestined for use in dynamically stressed components:

  • Increased hole expansion and the associated minimal edge cracking susceptibility
  • Process-safe production of very complex component geometries while maintaining high tensile strength
  • Significant potential for component integration
  • High fatigue strength, especially when subjected to dynamic stress
  • Potential for lightweight construction due to reduction in the thickness of the sheet metal and more construction-friendly design
  • Very good weldability
