Tool materials shaping the future,
Anna Medvedeva, R&D Manager Uddeholms AB
Uddeholm is the world’s leading manufacturer of tool steel for industrial tools. And that is no accident. We put our hearts into every piece of steel and every step of the process, from raw material to finished product. Technology is important, just as know-how and product development. At our research department, one of Sweden’s leading laboratories, we work to develop new products and renew our existing ones. What challenges does the customer face in future? This is always our starting point. The global technology trends like light-weight and low fuel consumption concepts, autonomous driving, digitalization, electrified vehicles, additive manufacturing, etc., highly influence the tool steel demand and property profile. The presentation will give the audience some examples on how Uddeholm is meeting the future challenges in tool materials.
