Off-Highway Research Manging Director Chris Sleight will be speaking as part of a webinar by Tata Steel. He will be providing a brief overview of the construction equipment market, with a particular focus on Europe, as part of the wider event which will look at demand and applications for abrasion resistant steel.
The webinar will explore how abrasion resistant steel can be used by OEMs as they develop more sustainable and long-lasting construction equipment. Tata steel says that its new abrasion-resistant steel, Valast, can help improve automated processing, reduce scrap rates and even lower costs.
