From 40% Scrap to Scrap Free

An MST Steel customer was using a roll former resulting in 40% of the material needing to be reworked or scrapped altogether. Unknown to the customer, the martensitic CR1500T/1200Y steel they were using creates quench pockets, deforming their metal.

The customer called us, asking for our help. We quickly determined the process employed to make the square tubing was creating quench pockets. Reviewing the costumers metal forming process, we created a permanent solution using our shape correction rolling mills, allowing for an improvement in the shape of the square tubing, but also an elimination of all metal scrap and rework.
