Tailored Aluminum Blanks
Lightweights in Serial Production
Aluminum makes vehicles significantly lighter – this reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. But Aluminum is also expensive! Therefore we developed Tailored Blanks made from Aluminum in partnership with Novelis, the global market leader for rolled Aluminum products, and got them on the road. For the first time we join Aluminum sheets of different thicknesses and grades to Tailored Aluminum Blanks – TAB® in series production. That saves weight and money, because the specific use of TAB® is lowering the costs for the high-priced Aluminum in the vehicle. Many OEMs have already approved our manufacturing process.
