Trucks gain efficiency with niobium steels 

In partnership with Brazilian truck parts manufacturer Rossetti, CBMM developed very strong, light dump bodies made of niobium microalloyed steel. At CBMM headquarters in Araxá, ore transport trucks are now equipped with the new lighter bodies, resulting in increased load capacity and reduced transportation costs. In just over two months, return on investment was achieved and the gains keep growing.​
