SSG offers unique special steels – The ETG and HSX

For over three decades, Swiss Steel Group (SSG) has been producing high-strength steels, offering a diverse range of specialized steels renowned for their exceptional mechanical properties and excellent machinability. Among these are the esteemed steel grades belonging to the ETG® and HSX® families, known for their high-strength and superior mechanical characteristics, making them ideal for high-performance applications and cost-saving initiatives. Engineered with enhanced cutting performance, ETG® and HSX® steels, manufactured by Steeltec, not only reduce machining times but also prolong tool life significantly, contributing to heightened productivity. These steels boast versatility, further enhancing operational efficiency and productivity. Specifically, ETG® steels facilitate exceptionally high cutting speeds, potentially reducing machining time by up to 50%, while maintaining low residual stresses and dimensional stability. Their ability to produce short-breaking chips supports safer and more streamlined production processes, ultimately improving machine running times and operational efficiency.
