Automotive Light weight – An International Challenge

World-wide we observe a permanent increase in the demand for cars. Customers ask for more space, more comfort, more crash safety. This dramatic increase of cars leads to severe economic and ecological problems. We spend more and more time in traffic jams and contribute extremely to drastical environmental pollution. Our energy ressources are limited

So we all have a responsibility for future generations – and driving a car  has to remain affordable. If we want to maintain our individual mobility we have to react!

International Trends in the Automotive Industry is the challenges for the Tooling Industry. Tool makers have to provide tools with improved performance and lifetime, reduced down times, quick and flexible deliveries.


       Platform standardisation.

       More model diversification, shorter development cycles

       Higher aesthetic demands.

       Demand for more comfort                    

       Higher demands on crash safety

       Economical pressure

       Long lifetime of the platform requires long lasting tools

       Higly reactive tool industry.       .

       Higher demands on surface quality of the tools, improved technologies in tool making.

       More complicated design of tools

       Tools have to respect innovative trends


Techniques towards less weight and reduced fuel consumption . We shall choose the right material at the right position. Replacement of traditional steel parts by                                           

       Plastics,                                                                                          ; ;        

       Cast aluminium or magnesium parts,                                                              

       Ultra high-strenth steel components,                                                       

       Forged aluminium parts within the suspension.

       Improved engine technologies

       Reduction of friction.

       We have three different technologies which contribute to auitomotive lightweight

       They all require new or at least optimized production routes

       They need new tool technologies

       They need best suitable tool steels in combination with proper heat treatment


Die cast components contribute to weight reductionin modern passenger cars
