BÖHLER-UDDEHOLM Precision Strip AB  is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Böhler-Uddeholm AG. It is one of the world‘s leading manufacturers of high quality precision strip steel.  We have been working with steels for more than 300 years. In 1670, a forging hammer was built in Munkfors. Since 1886 we have been making cold-rolled strip steel. In 1979 we formed Uddeholm Strip Steel AB.

Precision strip steel is a unique product for advanced applications. Few other materials show such a variety of property combinations. The following products are only a few examples of our product range:-

  • Remko soft magnetic iron

  • Saw Steel
    A wood bandsaw steel must be capable of being swaged or spring set and stellitised tensioned. It must have high fatigue strength, high wear resistance, good elasticity and toughness. The purity of the raw material and the accurately controlled working and heat treatment ensure that a bandsaw steel from Uddeholm Strip Steel will have the right combination of hardness, toughness and formability.

  • Flapper Valve Steel
    The flatness and surface finish of the flapper valve which controls the gas flow in a compressor must be capable of withstanding millions of load cycles. Moreover, the steel must be extremely pure and free from harmful inclusions. Uddeholm Strip produces flapper valve steel with optimum properties in refrigeration and freezer equipment, in heat pumps and in air conditioning systems.

  • Loom Reed Steel
    The weaving of fine-meshed metal and synthetic fabrics demands reeds of extremely high quality. All properties of the strip steel must basically have the highest possible precision and be uniquely combined.
  • Needle Steel
    A knitting machine comprises thousands of latch needles. These needles are formed from a cold-rolled precision strip steel and then hardened. To ensure that the needles will run smoothly and accurately in the knitting machine, their thickness must meet very close tolerances. Our needle steels meet all the demands that can be put on a high-quality latch needle steel. 
  • Razor Blade Steel
    A razor blade must be kind to the skin. To ensure comfortable shaving, our razor blade steel (AEB-L) is suitable for hardening and grinding to a sharp edge and it is hard enough to be durable. The razor blade must be free from harmful inclusions which could cause irregularity of the cutting edge. In addition to having all of these properties, the razor blade steel from Uddeholm Strip Steel is also made of martensitic stainless steel. 
  • Knife and Scalpel Steels
    Knife- and scalpel blades made from AEB-L have a sharpness and edge retention that satisfy extremely exacting requirements. Uddeholm Stainless AEB-L gives a first class edge-tool.
  • Other Strip Steels
    Uddeholm Strip Steel also manufactures plain or alloyed carbon steels, martensitic stainless steels for springs, accordion reeds, wafer gang saws, lapping carriers and a variety of engineering parts.

  • Coater, Crêping and Printing Doctor Blades
    Uddeholm Strip Steel manufactures finished products for applications in the Paper and Printing industries. Accurate straightness and flatness are the two most essential criteria for optimum performance. By producing our own special steels for all of these blades, we are able to maintain a very high and consistent quality in carbon, stainless and tool-steels. Our blades meet today's exacting customer demands around the world. In particular, our new wear resistant long-life blades, developed from our tool steels, enable customers to enjoy increases in productivity, as well as better qualities of both paper and printing. Longer runs between blade changes means less down time. For the printers, the finely dispersed microstructure of the long-life grades enable less pressure to be used against the expensive engraved cylinder in order to remove surplus ink. Coater Blades and Crêping Blades made from these new long-life materials also very much benefit the paper making mills, by reducing down time and improving the consistency and quality of the paper in these very expensive to run plants.
