Austenitic high-manganese TWIP steels have been produced on an industrial scale in the recent years. Thus a substantial know-how for the technical challenges in continuous slab casting, slab adjustment, hot-rolling and pickling was accumulated within the ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG and its subsidiary Hoesch Hohenlimburg GmbH. These steels expose a remarkable light-weight design potential compared to conventional ferritic and multiphase high strength steels and a cost saving potential compared to forged aluminum components. Yet this new class of steels didn’t establish itself sustainably within the automotive industry. In this article frequently arose questions in part layout, computer aided design, forming and welding of parts and assemblies made of high manganese twip steels is illuminated and solution paths are shown.
