Mubea produces flexible tailor-rolled blanks and lightweight design components with continuously variable wall thickness. With a weight savings of greater than 20% per part on average, this technology can be used for supporting structure and chassis components with different load peaks along the component’s geometry, such as cockpit cross car beam, rear chassis subframe, B-pillar, crossmember, and more. According to the company, there are also results in improved crash performance as the component is optimally designed for the load absorption. Mubea expects this technology will contribute to achieve weight and CO2 reduction targets for the coming years.
