Hot Stamping with USIBOR1500P: Materials Challenges in Production and Applications

Hot stamping is relatively new, rapidly growing technology used to produce ultra-high strength steel auto parts.  This talk will describe the hot stamping process and review the process and product metallurgy of Usibor 1500 P, ArcelorMittal’s AlSi coated hot stamping grade.  Other covered topics will include material challenges in coating line process equipment, challenges in improving ductility of hot stamped parts, challenges in producing hot stampings with galvanic (Zn) coatings and, finally, the challenges related to delayed fracture of hot stamped parts.
