With a patented approach to laser cutting of blanks from coil, LaserCoil Technologies systems enable companies to marry its laser cutting systems with any coil line automation, whether it be existing equipment currently in production or an investment in new or used equipment. According to the company, LaserCoil systems are flexible and can be integrated to work with traditional coil feeding equipment and can even be retrofit to existing press feeding lines. This allows users to leverage existing capital equipment investment and lower the cost of laser blanking system implementation while gaining flexibility, speed, and a high level of quality. LaserCoil systems can process a wide variety of coil material in aluminum, mild steel, the new high-strength steels, and other materials for surface-sensitive panels as well as structural components in thicknesses from 0.5 to 3.5 mm (0.02 to 0.14 in) and widths up to 2.1 m (6.9 ft) at any length.

Days before Tesla on Sept. 4 announced it has selected Nevada as the state in which it will build a large "Gigafactory' battery plant, Lux Research opined that the savings in lithium-ion battery costs owing to high-volume efficiencies will not be as much as the automaker expects it to be.
Researchers aim to develop a composite crashbox suitable for 1000 parts/day production at low cost and adapted to current mass-market vehicle design. Various matrixes, preform types, and manufacturing processes have been evaluated by axial and 15° off-axis crash tests. Solutions for short-term development are proposed, with 66% weight reduction compared to current steel parts, and an estimated price of less than €5 per saved kg.
Shiloh Industries claims to offer the industry’s lightest aluminum door blank for mass production without compromising part integrity or formability, allowing automakers to further reduce mass compared to existing methods.
Brose is manufacturing different vehicle mechatronic systems from its recently renovated New Boston, MI, plant.
