Modern ultra high strength steels produced by direct quenching
Enhanced understanding on metallurgy and steel production processes was created in FIMECC LIGHT programme. This enhanced knowledge has enabled the widening of the dimensional ranges of new and existing products, and also enabled the design of new steel grades. In addition, the results generated in the FIMECC LIGHT programme serve as a knowledge platform on which future...
Ramor 550 protection steel
During DEMAPP project SSAB Europe (Ruukki Metals) has developed Ramor® protection steel having excellent ballistic properties in combination with high hardness and strength.
New lightweight solutions for steel-based components reduces environmental footprint
New laser-welded lightweight sandwich panels for impact and wear resistant structures, and new lightweight panels for building industry were developed in FIMECC LIGHT programme. Benefits of new lightweight solutions are obtained over the whole life time of the product in terms of reduced energy consumption, reduced emissions and improved performance with integrated...
A roadmap towards sustainability
All products and service have an environmental impact during their production, use and disposal. The project focused on finding ways of guiding industrial product design and development towards sustainability, especially from a product-centric point of view. As a results two sustainability guidebooks for metals and engineering industry were created.
