2D Blanks

Blanks with a Nonlinear Shape of the Weld Seam

They are light, but have sufficient strength at crucial locations. Thanks to the nonlinear shape of the seam, 2D Blanks meet simultaneously the requirements for part weight, strength, stiffness, forming behavior and crash performance, as well as material utilization. For example, the areas of reinforced zones realized by thicker blanks can be reduced across the 2D Blank to its absolute minimum.
