New TK Mexico Line Blanks Aluminum, Steel

ThyssenKrupp Materials de Mexico has invested $20 million in a project to expand its Silao, Mexico, facility and install a Schuler blanking line that can handle both steel and aluminum.

The blanking line is already processing aluminum and carbon steel for exposed and unexposed automotive applications, including high-strength steel up to 1,200 MPa tensile strength. With the new line, the facility increases its annual processing capacity by nearly 70 percent, to about 270,000 tons, and adds the ability to produce aluminum blanks for customers.

“As this is the first blanking line in Mexico to produce carbon steel and aluminum blanks, it gives our customers flexibility and availability they have never had before. Our customers’ needs continue to evolve and so does our determination to meet them. We think this blanking line does exactly that,” says Olaf Voss, president of ThyssenKrupp Materials de Mexico.

Thyssenkrupp Materials de Mexico also has warehousing and material processing locations in Saltillo and Puebla, Mexico, totaling more than 400 employees at four locations.
