High-Strength Quarto Plate Made in Ilsenburg for Liebherr

02.12.2021 | Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH

The long-standing partner of Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH, Liebherr, is one of the first customers to receive plates from the MAXIL® series that were produced in the world's most modern heat treatment line at the Ilsenburg site. Around 32 Tt of heavy plate from the new line has been produced in the first half of 2021, with further quantities for various customers to follow in the second half of 2021. 

The high-strength MAXIL® grades S690 and S960 pass through the newly installed integrated MultiFlex quench, which enables Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH to meet even the highest quality and flatness requirements of its customers thanks to extremely flexible cooling strategies. The focus of the particularly demanding range is on high-strength and wear-resistant steels of the MAXIL® and BRINAR® series. This means an expansion of the sophisticated product range of Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH, especially in the premium segment. 

Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH is thus one of Liebherr's approved suppliers, providing the plants in Nenzing, Rostock and Ehingen with high-strength quarto plate, which is used, among other things, for the manufacturing of construction machinery, mobile and crawler cranes, and in maritime cargo handling.
