Severstal PTC has been selected as a supplier of galvanized steel for the production of cabs of new generation trucks, which are produced at the joint venture Daimler KAMAZ Rus. The first tests were conducted in 2016. Experts have studied the properties of the material and gave a positive conclusion. Additional tests of functional properties were continued in 2018, in 2019 the final answer was received that the metal is fully consistent with the high-quality standards of KAMAZ and Daimler AG. Galvanized metal will be produced at Cherepovets metallurgical plant using all modern methods of quality control.
At the moment, under the KAMAZ projects, deliveries of rolled metal from high – strength steel grades for the production of spars (S500MC-S600MC) are being carried out, pilot tests of two-phase ferrite-martensitic hot-rolled etched steel of increased strength of the DP600 brand are continuing. The ratio of high strength to low flow, high deformation hardening and the level of collision energy absorption allow it to be effectively used for the manufacture of car parts by cold stamping.
