Automotive applications

The drive for ever-greater fuel efficiency brings a world of new challenges for automotive engineers to overcome. As well as combining steel with lighter materials such as aluminium and magnesium, increasingly complex geometries are required to improve aerodynamic performance, increase powertrain efficiency and support alternative fuels.

 

Bmax technology offers an answer to many of these manufacturing challenges. Guaranteeing reduced component weight and size, lower production costs, lower part failure rate and longer life expectancy, our systems offer a huge range of automotive applications.
