Swiss Steel Group, supplier of stainless steels, announces the launch of its new range of UGIMA®-X martensitic and duplex steels.

The innovation is in response to increasing customer demand to expand the quality of UGIMA-X® austenitic grades to martensitic and duplex grades

Swiss Steel Group has introduced several new UGIMA®-X grades at its French subsidiary Ugitech, including UGIMA®-X 4021 and UGIMA®-X 4028 in the martensitic steel family. These grades offer increased hardness and wear resistance. Additionally, UGIMA®-X 4460 was introduced from the duplex steel family, which is known for its easy machinability, although duplex steels have a reputation for being difficult to machine.


The new UGIMA®-X grades are characterized by their reproducible behavior during machining and thus offer higher productivity and adaptability to the various cutting conditions on automatic and CNC machines. Thanks to the balanced distribution of elements such as sulfur and oxides, these steels ensure that the chips are broken down and the cutting tools last longer. This also increases the efficiency of processing.

Traditionally, stainless steels are known for their complex machining due to their robustness and strength. The new product range has improved machinability and good reproducibility.
