Machines for the construction industry are used under the most challenging conditions. For complex construction work on difficult subsoil, solid and durable equipment is required. thyssenkrupp Schulte, a company of the Materials Services Business Area, has proven to be a reliable dependable for these extreme requirements. One longstanding customer is BAUER Maschinen GmbH whose foundation engineering parts such as the masts of the drilling rigs and booms of the cranes, use special structural steel. Every year, thyssenkrupp Schulte delivers around 350 metric tons of special structural steel to this customer just-in-time and tailored to requirements.

The decisive factor in the selection of the material is its properties. Mr Christoph Hartmann, Regional Coordinator for Special Structural Steel at thyssenkrupp Schulte in Munich said that "We ensure that our partners receive only the finest material. Special structural steel is particularly remarkable for its wear resistance, which makes the equipment extremely resilient and tough.”

A further factor in the choice of material is its strength which allows the wall thickness of the parts and components to be reduced while at the same time providing high load-bearing capacity. This is an important criterion for the mobility of vehicles weighing several tons each.

Around 90 percent of the material is from the XAR® family and the high-strength N-AXTRA ® fine-grained structural steel produced by thyssenkrupp Steel Europe. In total, thyssenkrupp Schulte supplies its customers with around 50,000 tons of special structural steel yearly.
