Material development

Forward is the only direction we know
We are constantly searching for new, high-performance steel solutions. Steel is an extremely versatile material and to exploit the possibilities it offers we are continuously reassessing and improving our products and services. At Steeltec, improvement is a constant step-by-step process with one goal: maintaining our position as the premium provider of special steel solutions. Our work is focused on developing high-strength and higher strength special steels. The challenge is that high strength and high toughness do not normally go hand-in-hand with good machinability. At Steeltec, however, we have overcome this limitation by networking and pooling our expertise in the theory and practice of steel production and steel processing. We aim to establish development partnerships with you, our customers, so that we can identify and deliver the best possible steel solutions for your specific applications and component fabrication processes. At Steeltec we know, that working closely with you is the best way for us to provide high-quality products and services tuned to your technical and business demands. Working in partnership helps us to develop, and helps you to achieve reliable, robust and rationalised component production processes year in, year out.


Partnerships - Committed to providing premium steel solutions
At Steeltec, our aim is to find high-performance steel solutions to meet your specific application needs. That’s why we focus so strongly on development partnerships – after all, the best ideas are shared ideas. We work closely with our partners, investing time, energy and money into pushing back the boundaries of what is achievable – so that advanced components can be made more efficiently and reliably. Steeltec needs strong partnerships right along the value chain both within and outside the S+B Group: from suppliers, sales teams and product developers to universities and public bodies. And we need you – our customers – because you help us to leverage our technological expertise and you share our commitment to perfection. We want to work together with you, because

  • you have a clear understanding of your business and the markets you operate in
  • you share our passion for continuous improvement
  • you are interested not just in quick wins, but in achieving long-term objectives and ideals

You determine whether our partnership succeeds and whether together we can find the premium, high-performance steel solutions for your business and market needs.
