New forming method of aluminum can cut chassis weight in half in cars of the future

By | January 13th, 2016|Uncategorized|

AP&T is cooperating with Raufoss Technology, Hydro Aluminium and the SINTEF research institute to develop a new method for forming of aluminum sheet. The method will enable passenger cars to be manufactured with a significantly lower weight than today, which will enable greatly reduced fuel consumption and envi-ronmental impact. Dr Christian Koroschetz, Director Technology Development, sees great potential in the new method. "The goal is for chassis parts that are currently made of steel or die-cast aluminum to be manufactured from aluminum sheet in a PressFormHardening process, resulting in significantly [...]

Roemheld’s tried and tested magnetic clamping technology enables die changing on automatic punching machines and presses to be carried out in minutes, thanks to clamping times of just two to three seconds. As a result, the M-TECS range is ideal for the decreasing small batch sizes and increasing variety of workpieces that the sheet metal and plastic processing industries need. This flexible, universally applicable magnetic clamping system also means that no standardisation of dies is required. While clamping times of between 2 and 3 seconds are resulting in decreased downtime, [...]
