Other information: Aichi Steel is the only material manufacturer within the Toyota Group. Founded in 1940, the company has a head office in Aichi, and production plants in Chita (steelmaking and rolling), Kariya (steel rolling) and Chonburi (stele forgings plant).
Main manufactured products include carbon steels (flat and round SBQ bars, for gears, drive shafts etc); alloy steels (flat and round SBQ bars, SMn420-SMn443, SMnC420-SMnC443 and similar grades - for differential gears, inner and outer races, pinions, cylinder shafts, etc); H-shaped steel with guaranteed hardenability for structural use (e.g. SCr415H-SCr440H, SCM415H-SCM822H and similar pitting resistant gear steels, high impact fatique strength steel); alloy steel bolting materials; microalloyed steel (e.g. SVd40-SVd53, SVd40K and similar grades - steels that are often used for induction hardened parts); boron steels (e.g. SMnB440-SMnB445 grades - with boron added for increased hardenability); spring steels (for truck plate springs) and high carbon chrome bearing steel (for automotive and truck bearings). This list also includes stainless steel products (round bar, angles, channels, flats, H-beams, T-bars, custom welded shapes); rebar (including austenite stainless steel reinforcement bars, ferrite stainless steel reinforcement bars); stainless steel for use with high-pressure hydrogen; stainless steels for building structures (including plate, pipe, bar, fasteners). It also includes titanium bar products (rounds, flats, angles); forged products (automotive engine components; steering, chassis and transmission components; drive components, hot extruded products); tool steel (cold work tool steel, hot work tool steel); electro-magnetic products (including soft magnetic and non-magnetic stainless steels).
