The Evolution of Steel: AHSS

The evolving use of Advanced High Strength Steels continues to grow in application – especially in the automotive industry.

These state-of-the-art steel types are improving the safety, fuel economy, and all-around performance of vehicles on the road.
Advanced high-strength steels are multiphase steels that contain martensite, bainite, and/or retained austenite in amounts sufficient to produce unique mechanical properties (transformation hardening).

This high strength and high formability combination of AHSS allows engineers to meet requirements for safety, durability, efficiency, emissions, manufacturability, and quality at a lower cost. These new generation of steel grades have a bright future – and Global Tooling Resources wants you to take part.
