"Reinventing steel every day."
The MCL laboratories provide the foundations for the development of innovative steels for specific applications. A wide range of optimisation processes is available depending on customer requirements:
- Improving material properties such as maximum strength or toughness and physical properties such as thermal conductivity and expansion
- Cost reduction through resource efficiency in the manufacturing process and shorter process chains, e.g. for novel age-hardening steels
- Design of steels that open up new fields of application
The process chain simulation of hardness and residual stress distributions allows the calculation of permissible local stresses. The component and manufacturing process can be optimised in an iterative process.
