Aluminum Stamping

Aluminum stamping is carried out in order to meet tough requirements regarding vehicle weight reduction. This technology is effective in addressing the impact on fuel consumption and the harmful greenhouse effects of carbon dioxide emissions. By substituting steel components with aluminum alloys, parts with lower weight can be produced without compromising BiW crashworthiness.

With its integrated material database that covers all relevant aluminum alloys, AutoForm’s software enables you to design, engineer and produce aluminum parts of the highest quality. Stamped parts made from aluminum are more affected by springback than those made from conventional deep-drawn steels. With AutoForm software, you can successfully carry out springback compensation in order to ensure that parts are produced within required tolerances. Aluminum alloys are especially suited for body side apertures outer panels, closure body parts and even structural components.
