Unique opportunities in light tipper bodies - Ruukki
"Replacing the traditional thick quarto plates with a thinner material creates a lighter end-product.
Benefits for end-users include higher payloads and savings in fuel consumption.
Our customers have typically achieved a weight saving of over 10% by using thin, laser-welded Raex sheets," continues Salin.
Direct-quenched steel is used, for example, in lifting equipment, trucks, buses, train wagons and coaches, as well as in various protection applications.
"It's thanks to special steels that savings can be made in fuel and lifecycle costs.
In addition, special steels increase performance.
Thin, high-strength steel enables higher aerial platforms," says Salin.
Both special steel grades are used in the tipper bodies and frame structures of trucks.
"This saves fuel and also prolongs the lifecycle of a product."
