SSAB Laser guaranteed flatness after cutting

Guaranteed flatness of ≤ 3mm/m, even after cutting

SSAB Laser® steel comes with guaranteed maximum flatness deviation of 3.0 mm/m, both before and after laser cutting. SSAB’s comprehensive process control during its production results in extremely flat and uniform steel sheets and plates.

Advantages include:

  • Making your automated production trouble-free
  • Tight nesting for better material utilization
  • Reduced need for re-leveling
  • Increased dimensional precision of laser-cut components
  • Increased yields (i.e., greatly reduced scrap)
  • Faster cutting speeds
SSAB Laser outstanding cold forming properties

Superior cold-forming properties

SSAB Laser® steel offers extremely tight bending radiuses in both directions. And SSAB Laser® Plus grades are available with bending radiuses as low as 0 x thickness. Consistent mechanical properties and narrow tolerances for all SSAB Laser® steels guarantee predictable performance with high repeatability for your cold-forming operations.

Advantages include:

  • More efficient nesting independent of rolling direction
  • Greater freedom in component geometry
  • Crack-free bending and trouble-free automated forming
  • Increased yield-to-scrap ratios
  • Achieve complex shapes without welding
SSAB Laser optimized surface and high quality cut edges

Optimized surface and high quality cut edges

SSAB Laser® steel has an optimized surface quality for laser cutting. This allows you to achieve the same cutting parameters as you work from batch to batch. Imagine: no compromises on cut edge quality or precision — even with plates that are 30 mm thick.

Advantages include:

  • Trouble-free laser cutting
  • Minimized disturbances during production
  • Shorter production times
  • Less rework
  • Higher quality laser-cut components

Cut the scrap — increase yields up to 30%

Thanks to SSAB Laser® steel’s flatness, optimized surface and high quality cut edges, cutting paths can be shared — and small diameter holes and narrow slots can be cut with great precision. You can achieve up to 30% higher yields, increasing the profitability of your laser-cutting production.

Fossil-free steel from SSAB

SSAB has long been a frontrunner when it comes to sustainability, which is why we have devised an ambitious plan to support a sustainable future by not only offering fossil-free steel to the market in 2026, but also largely eliminating CO2 emissions from our own operations in around 2030.

SSAB Laser® steel’s consistent chemistry and flatness enable maximized automated laser cutting

Total process control at the mill results in highly optimized, consistent chemical compositions, processed to extreme, guaranteed flatness. SSAB Laser® grades fulfill your most challenging requirements for fast and trouble-free laser cutting and cold-forming, enabling shorter production time, less need for rework, and more precise structural steel components.

  • Optimized and consistent chemistry, with superior steel cleanliness
  • Uniformly narrow tolerances for high dimensional accuracy
  • Properties always exceed EN standards
  • Enhanced impact toughness at low temperatures, down to -60°C
  • Optimized surface quality for laser cutting
  • Predictable and repetitive performance during cold-forming operations
  • Excellent welding properties

SSAB Laser® Plus 

Improved bending and impact resistance

For improved bendability and impact toughness at very low temperatures, SSAB Laser® Plus steels deliver even higher performance — minimizing the risk for cracks during production and in your final product.
