On October 9, HBIS delivered over 200 tons of NM500-KC high performance abrasion resistance steel, with a 1500MPa tensile strength, to a professional dumper truck manufacturer in Northern China. The strips will be used to manufacture dumper truck body for off-road mining, and it will be used in Heidaigou, one of China's five largest open-cast coal mines.
NM500-KC is a customized high performance abrasion resistant steel with tensile strength up to 1500MPa, and it is the first time to put this product into application in China. Compared with 1300MPa grade resistant steel, it can reduce the weight by 30% and increase service life by more than 200% under the same conditions.
By taking full advantages of its globalized R&D facilities, HBIS innovatively applied a number of technologies in the production process, and finally succeeded in the development of the product. The impact wear performance of the product is enhanced by 2.6 times; and the thickness of the product is around 10-20 mm (product with 20mm thickness is for car floor manufacturing), 10 mm thinner than the original ones.
After the complete set delivery of the first batch of more than 260 tons of NM500-KC, HBIS Abrasion Resistant Steel Team provided a follow-up service by sending professional personnel to give consultation in processing, forming and welding production, which received fully recognition from the customer. Up to present, the customer has successively added 6 extra orders, with a total of more than 1400 tons purchase amount.
