Design Tips for AHSS and Benefits for Concrete-Pump Maker
SSAB offers a video and other resources providing top tips for designing with advanced high-strength steel (AHSS). Because sheet and plate made from AHSS are less thick but subjected to higher stress levels than conventional steels, the use of this steel places an increased focus on design, say SSAB officials, noting that design literally can make or break the potential of a long-lasting product.

AMADA Introduces the World’s First Fiber Laser Cutting System with Locus Beam Control (LBC)
AMADA’s LBC Technology creates infinite locus patterns—ensuring the optimum beam shape for each specific cutting application. This results in the highest quality cuts in both stainless and mild steel and the best edge quality in aluminum with virtually no dross. The VENTIS 3015 AJ leverages a high-brightness fiber laser oscillator to maintain optimum quality of the high-energy density laser beam. Unique cutting capabilities and exceptional speed enable the 4kW VENTIS to easily rival fiber lasers utilizing much higher wattage at a considerably lower operating cost.
