MBW® manganese-boron steel from thyssenkrupp for hot forming offers maximum strength coupled with good formability. A combination of MBW® manganese-boron steel with high- and ultra-high-strength steels allows components with extremely complex geometries to be manufactured by hot forming.
In addition, significant weight savings can be achieved. In contrast to cold forming, this hot forming process combines the forming operation and the hardening treatment in a single step. Typical applications for MBW® manganese-boron steel are bumper crossbeams, side impact beams, pillars and components for car body reinforcement.
