Lightweight specialist for highest automobile performance
In the area of serial production, our customers will find the right partner for sophisticated and complex body structures and components including ready to paint car bodies. Our experts in serial production cover the entire spectrum from small batches in manual work to fully automated serial production, combined with extensive experience in the wide range of process technologies used in today's body construction, the thyssenkrupp Group's combined materials expertise and extensive experience in plant and tool making, coupled with the necessary quality methods and control loops to meet customer requirements. All common materials of modern lightweight construction are processed to meet the requirements of our customers' most diverse vehicle concepts.
In addition to the series production of complete paint-ready aluminum steel and composite designs car bodies, our experts produce components made of aluminum steel structure and add-on parts in.
We intensively address the requirement for more lightweight materials. In cooperation with the TCCC (thyssenkrupp Center Carbon) as well as universities and research institutions we have expanded the spectrum to the processing of composites (vacuum infusion, RTM, RTM-light), magnesium and hybrids.
We consistently explore new roads in forming technology, and are leaders in the field of hydroforming, high-pressure metal forming of sheet metals, tubes and profiles with active liquid media. Our goal is to produce components with a complex geometry in only one metalworking step. The cost benefits are enormous.
