UGIMA-X: The new steel for faster processing

For machined bar steel parts, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and machinability are critical factors for life cycle costs. The better a material can be machined and drilled, the more cost effective the manufacturing process for machining operations.

A new dimension in machinability

UGIMA®-X is a completely new development from Ugitech with an even better machinability compared to the predecessor steel UGIMA. The addition of very fine oxide inclusions in the liquid metal significantly improves machinability. As a stainless steel specialist in the field of machine steels, Ugitech has a perfect command of their composition so that, in addition to excellent machinability, corrosion resistance is also guaranteed.


The now third UGIMA® generation also meets the high requirements of state-of-the-art CNC machining centres, which operate at up to 10,000 rotations per minute. At high cutting speeds, the inclusions in the steel unfold their full potential for less tool wear. With UGIMA-X, steel processors benefit from a longer tool life, better chip fragmentation and more reliability in production planning.
