Laser Welded Lightweight Blanks
Tailored Blanks are custom-made blank assemblies made from steel or aluminum. They consist of multiple sheets of various thicknesses, strengths and coatings, laser welded to a single blank assembly or even a whole coil. By doing so each material is located at its optimum place.
Our laser welded blanks and coils serve different requirements: Tailored Blanks eliminate the manufacturing of additional reinforcements and overlap joints in the body-in-white. Besides this they reduce the total weight significantly due to the reduced input of material – and so support the automotive industrie in reaching the legally enforced CO2 targets.
