Control arms are responsible for wheel control. They are subjected to high forces during operation, especially in electric vehicles with high vehicle weight. Control arms forged from aluminum offer excellent strength and are also particularly light. Hot forging allows a wide variety of geometries, so that the control arms can be easily integrated into tight assembly spaces. Hirschvogel produces straight control arms or struts for front and rear axles as well as upper wishbones for the front axle. Modern forging machines guarantee optimized production in terms of resources and costs.

Production processes
