Bending & Rolling
Bending high strength steel sheet and plate rarely proves to be difficult, however, there are certain parameters that must be considered. A material of high purity with few inclusions is of fundamental importance, in order to achieve a good bending result. SSAB’s modern processing allows for high standards of surface quality, tolerances and mechanical properties.
Wear plates such as Hardox with high strengths can be cold worked by bending and roll bending. Due to the higher strength, however, factors must be applied to ensure that the bending and roll bending can be carried out with the best possible quality.
Rolling - To roll Hardox sheets and plates three rolls are used. We roll the sheets and plates of Hardox 400, Hardox 450 and Hardox 500 with thickness 1 to 60 mm and a width of 2-2.5 meters. Sheet and plate thicknesses up to 40 mm can be rolled without excess length. To roll thicker plates, excess length is required.
