News: MTL going from strength to strength with 700 tonne order


Rotherham manufacturing specialist, MTL Advanced has secured a massive order for 700 tonnes of the Hardox product - the single largest order it has received for the advanced steel plate.

A project manufacturing specialist in the metal sector, the firm processes around 25,000 tonnes of material annually and is capable of handling all sizes and types of work from carbon steel to aluminium. It supplies leading names in sectors such as defence, construction, offshore and renewable energy, recycling and rail.

The Brinsworth site houses state of the art equipment and dedicated teams of engineers working on projects for clients such as Sandvik, Caterpillar, JCB and Terex.


MTL is a major UK supplier of Hardox, a high-strength abrasive plate made in Sweden by SSAB and known as a hard and tough steel for aggressive environments. MTL processes steel to supply safety critical parts including booms, chassis and major structural components for the construction and quarrying sector.

The plates will be delivered by MTL to an unnamed customer, cut and pressed using the firm's state-of-the-art equipment at the 300,000 sq ft facility, including the newly installed 6m x 2.5m Trumpf Laser 8000 cutting machine with automated handling system, the largest installation of its kind. The handling system provides increased efficiency and exceptional quality.

MTL said it worked closely with the customer on the project, turning around high volumes of material efficiently to ensure that all work adheres to a tight delivery schedule. 700 tonnes will be delivered over a four month period.

MTL offers a specialist added value engineering service called Design for Manufacture (DFM), where a dedicated team come together at the design stages, to review the customer's design and look at alternative processing methods to reduce weight, cost and increase the protection levels, resulting in cost savings for the customer.
