Higher demands on the recyclability of materials and products mean more processing of materials such as metal scrap, white goods, plastic, household waste, wood and tyres.
In machines for recycling, blades/knives or hammers are mounted on shafts or alternatively screwed/welded onto a drum. Large stresses arise in the recycling process, in the form of abrasive and adhesive wear and chipping of the machine components.
By using ASSAB’s high performance steel you combine good toughness and ductility with high hardness for a high wear resistance. Examples in this range include the ASSAB 718, Unimax and ASSAB 88.
