As a result, a long-standing customer was looking for a way to make the produced stabilizer lighter while the physical properties should be maintained. Jansen provides here new possibilities for weight savings incorporating high-tensile materials. The use of air hardening steel materials or other high-grade heat treatable steel allows components to be lighter while maintaining their physical properties.
After a cooperative analysis with the customer, the strength of the stabilizer could be designed to approx. 2000 - 2200 MPa by using the higher quality material 40MnCrB5. This made it possible to reduce the wall thickness from 4.00 mm to 3.40 mm and thus also to reduce the weight of the steel tube by 15 %.
Your requirements are our motivation. We will be pleased to evolve an innovative lightweight solution with you that is tailored to your specific needs. Please contact us for a personal meeting.
