HyCAL’s exceptional AHSS/UHSS products are the result of our unique hydrogen continuous anneal line.
Built by Ebner, the world leader in hydrogen annealing and heat treating equipment, our line gives us the capability to control properties like no one else in the world.
Our products come off the line ready to go into production—on spec, with superior flatness and incomparable consistency of properties across the strip length and width. Even for martensite grades.
No post anneal processing is required to correct shape, so no stresses are added to your coils. You’ll see higher yields, more parts per coil and more consistent production.
HyCAL can reduce your steel and manufacturing costs.
HyCAL Grade and Property Examples
SimCAL Adds Control
Our Process Simulator (SimCAL) duplicates the thermal model of the CAL allowing us to refine properties PRIOR to production, resulting in on spec finished material. Once an acceptable thermal cycle is identified, the SimCAL locks in the entire thermal cycle of heating and quenching to accurately produce the targeted grade. The SimCAL also streamlines grade development and certification.
