Swiss Steel Group, a leading supplier of stainless steels, announces the launch of its revolutionary new product range: UGIMA®-X Martensitic and Duplex steels.

This ground-breaking innovation is a response to increasing customer demand to extend the quality of UGIMA-X® austenitic grades to martensitic and duplex grades.

Swiss Steel Group has introduced several new UGIMA®-X grades at its French subsidiary Ugitech, including UGIMA®-X 4021 and UGIMA®-X 4028 in the martensitic steel family. These grades offer increased hardness and superior wear resistance.

In addition, UGIMA®-X 4460 has been introduced from the duplex steel family, which is known for its easy machinability, although duplex steels have a reputation for being difficult to machine.

The new UGIMA®-X grades are characterized by their reproducible behavior during machining, thus offering higher productivity and optimal adaptability to the various cutting conditions on automatic and CNC machines. Thanks to a perfect balance of elements such as sulphur and oxides, these steels ensure optimum chip splitting and a longer service life for cutting tools. This also increases the efficiency of machining.

Traditionally, stainless steels are known for their complex machining due to their robustness and strength, which often poses challenges for bar turners. The Swiss Steel Group has taken up this challenge in order to simplify the machining process. An innovative product range with improved machinability is the result of this development: UGIMA®. This innovation offers exceptionally good machinability and unsurpassed reproducibility from one batch to the next.

To experience these innovations up close, the Swiss Steel Group cordially invites all interested parties to visit its stand K25 in Hall B1 at Simodec from March 4-8 in La Roche-sur-Foron (France). There, visitors will have the opportunity to share this important progress with the Swiss Steel Group experts and experience the new UGIMA®-X grades for themselves.
