Innovation in Steel- Jan 17th, 2018 - Register Online!
The need for innovation in steel products is driven by rigorous fuel economy and safety standards. Steel has gone and continues to go through an evolution and through innovation, steel remains the material of choice. Advanced automotive steel grades provide sufficient body-in-white weight reduction potential to help get passenger cars and light trucks to fuel economy requirements. Major car OEMs are seeing the benefit of these innovative new products and have implemented them in their new vehicles to further reduce weight, improve safety and improve fuel economy.
