AP&T has been awarded first prize in the 2017 Altair Enlighten Award competition in the Enabling Technology category. AP&T was recognised for its innovative hot-forming production method involving high-strength aluminium. The results of the competition were presented at the CAR Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, Michigan, USA.
AP&T’s technology enables flexibility in the forming of high-strength car body components with complex shapes, and enables weight savings of between 30% and 50%. “The multi-purpose production line we have developed enables outstanding flexibility in the forming of high-strength aluminium components, as well as additional freedom of design, making function and part integration possible in new ways,” says AP&T CTO, technology development, Christian Koroschetz.
