Upgrade your design

Upgrade your design – reach new heights

Mobile cranes, loader cranes, work platforms and other lifting equipment can achieve new levels of performance by using Strenx® 1100 high-strength structural steel. Optimizing the design to take advantage of the high strength makes the equipment lighter, giving increased load capacity and longer reach.

Mechanical cutting

Mechanical cutting of Strenx® 1100 is best performed with guillotine shears. Consider carefully the settings of the cutting machine. The most important factors are clearance, cutting angle and blade hardness. The plate should be allowed to warm up thoroughly to around +20°C before it is cut.
