Reducing energy consumption through lightweight construction
Less is more! With our lightweight construction components, we pursue a philosophy that aims to efficiently save weight without restricting performance and safety. Lightweight construction has developed into a key technology in numerous industry branches. In the automotive branch, the primary aim is to reduce CO2 emissions and achieve sustainability.
Innovative technologies also allow us to meet requirements that at first glance might seen to be mutually contradictory. HMT has developed solutions for producing lightweight components for the automotive industry with as little use of material as possible while still meeting the high requirements placed upon stability and safety. With our know-how and experience, we combine technology, economy, and ecology to produce an ideally designed unit.
Efficient lightweight construction using a multi-material mix is predominantly required in the vehicle sector for the growing e-mobility segment. This is because the other components need to be slimmed down to compensate for the weight of the high-performance batteries. With our skill in forming and joining ultra-high-strength steel and aluminium alloys as well as joining technology for connecting the most varied of materials - such as combining steel and aluminium - we make an important contribution to this topic area, and not least to reducing production costs. Above all, major impetus for intelligent solutions arises through collaboration with the manufacturers and network of Automotive Center Südwestfalen (acs), which is an amalgamation of well-known manufacturers from
