Axzion processes more than 2,000 tons of steel per year, where we depend on flexible and efficient suppliers. The main suppliers are Thyssen, Arcelor, Salzgitter and Unionstahl. Only with good components a safe and good solution can be produced. For many years we have worked only with the best steel suppliers, so the tested steels are mainly sourced from Arcelor, Union Stahl, ThyssenKrupp and Carl Spaeter.
When selecting the heavy plates to be processed, we focus on fine-grained structural steels with high strength and toughness values in addition to optimum weldability (e.g. low tendency to cold cracking) and very good machinability.
This means that different thermomechanically rolled steels (also called TM steels for short) are often chosen.
Stainless steels used must have excellent resistance to a large number of aggressive media and thus a high oxidation resistance. Here the choice falls mainly on so-called austenitic stainless steels (non-magnetic) with a Ni content of >=2.5% (from material number 1.44…).
