The challenge presented by an Automotive Stamper was more than just a extended beyond material limitations, it struck at the very core of their operational capabilities. The Stamper had been sourcing Hot Dipped Galvanized CR780T/420Y 60G60G Steel from a local supplier, only to find that the material was posing difficulties in their stamping process. Specifically, the steel was resistant to forming complex shapes, a crucial requirement from their end clients.

Given MST Steel’s longstanding experience in working with a range of domestic and international businesses, the Stamper knew that we were well-versed in solving such challenges. They sought our expertise to conduct a thorough part evaluation for Hot Dipped Galvanized Steels and recommend the most suitable option.

After conducting our comprehensive evaluation, we recommended a high-forming version of Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel, specially designed for improved elongation, tensile, and yield strength. This would allow the Stamper to achieve the complex shapes necessary to meet customer demands without compromising on structural integrity.

The result was instant and remarkable. Upon switching to the steel that MST Steel recommended, the Stamper encountered zero issues in their stamping process. They could now form intricate shapes with ease, thereby broadening their service offerings and satisfying their clients’ complex requirements.
