Hardox 400 Plates / Hardox 450 Plates / Hardox 500 Plates is highly suited for press and roll bending because to its purity, flatness, and constant quality. Thinner products, in general, may be bent to smaller radiuses. Hardox can be bent to a lower radius transverse to the rolling direction than in the rolling direction.
Abrasive Water-Jet Cutting or Laser Cutting may be suitable alternatives to gas cutting for manufacturing smaller components or minimizing hardness degradation in the zone next to the cut surface. A heat-affected zone forms at the cut surface, as it does in all thermal cutting. Before gas cutting, thick Hardox 400/450/500 should be warmed. The material does not loss hardness during abrasive water-jet cutting, which is a cold-working procedure. The heat-affected zone is quite tiny in laser cutting. Hardox is highly suited for press and roll bending because to its purity, flatness, and constant quality. Welding on the Hardox to any sort of weldable steel may be accomplished using any normal welding procedure.
