Steel Navigator is our digital platform that helps designers and engineers choose the right steel for the application. In our easy-to-use filtering system, several hundreds of Ovako steel grades are searchable.
Using the parameters that are most important for the customers’ application, the Material data sheets rates the grades. The result of the search is a list of steel grades that meets the requirements in varying degrees with the best match on top of the list.
Also, the Material Data Sheets offer extensive information about each steel grade including chemistry, mechanical properties but also relative properties like weldability and machinability. Each steel grade has all its information gathered on a product sheet that available to print out, distribute or save for later in the My list-function, which saves searches and product sheets.
In the Steel Navigator, customers also find other support tools for more knowledge about our steels. The Heat Treatment Guide is a very sophisticated tool to calculate the heat treatment response of any steel grade. The user can choose from hundreds of pre-defined grades (both Ovako grades and international standard grades) or choose a user defined chemical composition. The output that is calculated by the guide is hardenability and tempering response. The user can easily compare how different grades respond to heat treatment. The M-Steel® Calculator gives proof on how much more efficient the machining becomes when using M-Steel® from Ovako.
With Piston Rod Predictor the user can see exactly what difference it can make, as the tool enables to compare Cromax steel grades with the most commonly used standard grades for piston rods.
In addition to this, the Steel Navigator entails a database with our technical papers, so called Technical Reports, and also glossary and conversion tables, with more to come.
At Ovako, we know just how many different parameters that define a steel grade. The Steel Navigator makes it easy to find the best match.
