Modern vehicles are becoming ever larger, ever lighter and ever safer. What sounds relatively simple is a real challenge for manufacturers of structural components and multifunctional designs.
Lightweight construction, a basic prerequisite for modern vehicle production, requires different materials, different fasteners and, in particular, weight-reduced designs. At the same time, these must be optimized for strength. This is the only way to ensure the desired crash stability.
To ensure that tube assemblies can also withstand highly dynamic loads, KOHLHAGE has successfully demonstrated how tube bending and welding processes can be further optimized.
