Without compromising on size, safety and comfort, the automotive industry tends to rely more and more on aluminium.
The structural components of a vehicle, bear weight and have an effect on vehicle safety. Etem Gestamp has a long experience in the supply of structural elements for vehicles, starting from the choice of the right aluminium alloys and concept design, to prototypes solutions and serial productions.
The emphasis is on lightweight solutions and constructions, that minimize total vehicle weight and have a direct impact on fuel consumption and energy efficiency.
Aluminium due to its unique technical and mechanical characteristics holds a dynamic and growing role on lightweight solutions. As a relative soft and cost efficient material, allows for greater flexibility in producing complex designs and geometries through primary extrusion and post forming machining processes.
