Classic grades and customized material solutions with defined properties

Cold rolled steel strip – materials with a broad spectrum 

Whether unalloyed, low-alloyed or alloyed: our standard grades cover a wide range of traditional applications. They also serve as the base products to which further hardening and tempering and refinement processes are applied to produce high-performance products for applications with specific requirements. It is of utmost importance to produce DC-grade steels, low-alloyed steels, case-hardening steels, steels for quenching and tempering as well as spring steels in a controlled environment with precisely defined property parameters and with a perfect microstructure. We produce all material variations tailored to the exact properties requested. That is our expertise.

One material – many possibilities: for example, tensile strength

Overview of the various tempered or non-tempered steel strip chemistries with high carbon content. Waelzholz is the only cold rolling mill with specialized machinery for each of the three microstructures: martensite, bainite and sorbite.

Steels for quenching and tempering Perfect formability

Steels for quenching and tempering from Waelzholz combine properties which, at a first glance, appear to be opposites: good formability and subsequent good hardenability. more 

Spring steel Spring steel with optimal yield strength

We tailor the yield strength of our spring steels precisely to the requirements of customer applications. more 

Fine blanking grades Fine blanking for smooth cut surfaces

The fine blanking technique is imperative if the cut surfaces of the steel strip are to serve a functional purpose in the final product. more
