Celebrating 15 years of Great Designs in Steel
During a press briefing, SMDI presented the 2016 Men and Women of Steel awards to two distinguished honorees who are champions of the use of AHSS.
Steel gives automakers exactly what they need because it is strong, formable, lightweight and affordable.
You want a dependable vehicle that performs no matter where the road takes you and the reliability that only advanced high-strength steel can provide.
2016 Steel Industry Technology Roadmap for Automotive
A report on material and manufacturing technologies related to design, fuel economy, strength, durability, environmental performance and value and how AHSS meets those requirements now and in the future.
The Importance of the Production Phase in Vehicle Life Cycle GHG Emissions
A study showing the material production phase accounts for a significant portion of overall vehicle life cycle emissions; therefore, it must be considered as part of any overall regulatory program to reduce vehicle emissions.
