Thin-walled Forged Parts in the Car Body

The portfolio of the Hirschvogel Automotive Group is expanding continuously. A new product group is now being generated: Forged steel or aluminum parts for applications in the car body. Forged parts in monoblock design consist of a single part with no joining operations necessary. They combine high strength and high ductility, allowing considerable energy absorption in the event of a crash. Thin component areas, such as those for spot welding on car body parts, and thick component areas in which a thread can be introduced merge into each other without seams and joints. These parts, which are new to the area of forging, increase crash safety and product quality. They also offer new possibilities for functional integration in the car body. With the first serial orders, Hirschvogel has already achieved successful market entry with forged parts in the area of car bodies.
