Finland : Ruukki's high strength steel offering expands - 960 QL plate available.

Ruukki's Optim portfolio of high-strength structural steels has been expanded with yet another new grade. Ruukki can now offer 960 QL plate grade to better serve especially the lifting equipment industry. Ruukki's offering for crane manufacturers now includes Optim QC 900 and 960 grades from strip mill in thicknesses from 3-10 mm and 960 QL plate from 8-12 mm. Both plate and strip products fulfill the requirements of the corresponding standards (EN 10149-2 and EN 10025-6+A1). The bendability of the 960 QL grades exceeds the standard - a minimum bending radius of 3.5 x t in all directions is guaranteed.

"Our product portfolio for lifting industry now covers customer demands more extensively. Our exceptionally good surface quality allows customers to have a superior look in their end product," says Panu PitkEnnen, Vice President, Optim & Raex at Ruukki.

Ruukki is a leader in the development of high-strength special steels and has been manufacturing Optim high-strength steels since 2002. Ruukki's manufacturing programme includes the thinnest ultra-high-strength structural steels on the market. The benefit of Ruukki's innovative Optim QC grades up to 1100 in thin gauges is their exceptionally good surface quality, flatness and thickness accuracy from one batch to another. This gives crane manufacturers a competitive advantage. Ruukki also provides local technical and application support to help customers to get the most out of using special steels. Prompt and reliable deliveries are guaranteed by an extensive distribution and dealer network across some 30 countries.
