Wear resistant steel – join Tata Steel to talk about the future

By Charlotte Kemp10 February 2021

What does the future of the construction equipment sector look like in Europe? How does the sector adapt and move forward from the Covid-19 crisis? And what does this mean for construction equipment manufacturers?

These are some of the questions we’ll be looking at before we dive into our webinar about Valast®, Tata Steel’s new abrasion resistant steel product designed for construction equipment.

In the webinar, we’ll explore how abrasion resistant steel can support manufacturers as they develop more sustainable and long-lasting construction equipment. Valast can facilitate for example, better automated processing, it can improve scrap rates and even lower costs.

What have been the biggest learnings from 2020? What should we now expect to see in the construction equipment industry over the short, medium and long term? And how can Valast benefit construction equipment makers and their customers?

Join Tata Steel for the Let’s talk about the future webinar at 13:30 (CET) on Thursday 18 March as it brings together a group of experts to look at the European construction equipment market and introduce Valast, the newest product in abrasion resistant steel.
