Monday, March 27, 2006
Independent steel-service center Denman & Davis, Clifton, NJ, has joined with Tools4Mfg.com, an online business-to-business trading community for steel suppliers and purchasers. Customers of the service center now have access to an advanced materials calculator that enables them to determine specific project requirements, including material types, grades and processing methods. Buyers then send that project information to Denman & Davis, via the database of registered suppliers, which then responds with an automated customer-specific price quote.

Corus Tubular Blank to Become
the First Hydroformed Crash Can in Europe
Friday, March 24, 2006
Netherlands-based steel company Corus has won the contract to supply the Metalbages plant of the Gestamp Group in Pamplona, Spain, with its Hyfo tubular blank. Metalbages will hydroform the blanks into crash cans, reportedly the first hydroformed crash cans to go into production in the European automotive market. While traditional crash cans are typically constructed of as many as eight components, the hydroformed can will comprise a single part cut in half to produce a vehicle pair. The result: reduced assembly complexity and a significant weight reduction. Learn more at www.corusautomotive.com
