Laser-welded blanks with non-linear seam
They are light, but strong enough at the crucial points: Thanks to their non-linear seam, 2-D Blanks satisfy all needs at the same time – such as part weight, strength, stiffness, forming behavior and crash performance as well as material utilization. Reinforced areas of thicker materials can be reduced to the minimum necessary, for example, within a Tailored Blank.
Benefits at a glance
2-D Blanks are different to conventional Tailored Blanks in that they have
- even lower part weight.
- even lower material costs.
Areas of application
- Body shop: Door inner panels, Tailgates
- Chassis technology: Shock towers
- Exhaust technology: Exhaust shells
We manufacture 2-D Blanks in all carbon steels and stainless steels. Thicknesses may vary between 0.6 and 3.0 mm. Welds are possible up to a length of 2,800 mm.
