Sweden’s SSAB tells Kallanish that it has appointed BE Group as a so-called SSAB Laser Certified Partner. BE Group, a distributor also headquartered in Sweden, is a long-standing partner of SSAB in trading hot rolled plate, strip and tubular products, the steelmaker says.
The SSAB Laser steel product has been especially developed for laser cutting and cold forming. It has guaranteed flatness both before and after laser cutting, SSAB adds.
The SSAB Laser distribution network now consists of 22 dedicated partners in 13 countries in Europe. BE Group now joins this network in Finland and the Baltics.
“A growing number of customers can benefit from fast, problem-free cutting with shorter production time, less need for rework and greater precision in the cut components since the network of partners is given thorough training in both the product and its applications,” says Jouni Rättyä, Senior Cross Product Manager at SSAB Europe.
