In mining and construction, a wide range of different machines and tools may be used. But they all have one thing in common: they must withstand many types of aggressive conditions, involving high loads, fatigue, and wear. They also need to be suitable for fabrication in a way that allows high productivity and high repeatability.
Repeatability is also a key element in how customers use their tools, especially as many mining systems nowadays are intended to work autonomously. Ovako’s range of steels meet the needs of both production and applications for just about every tool used in the world of mining and construction.
From top hammer shank to drill bit, down-the-hole (DTH) drilling components, hydraulic breakers and grinding media, you’ll find Ovako steel ins use at construction and mining sites across the globe. And it always delivers the highest level of performance, day in and day out.
Reducing global CO2 emissions demands smarter product solutions and requires rethinking on many levels: more performance benefits per kilogram of product, less raw materials, and substituting fossil fuel energy sources with primarily fossil-free electricity.

We made it! But we are still not satisfied
What a journey! It took years of hard work to make our steelmaking operations more sustainable. In 2022, we went carbon neutral in all operations. But we´re still not satisfied - our journey continue for products with no CO2 emissions.
