Steel innovation for our automotive customers
Paderborn, October 9, 2019. We know how to form and join metal like nobody else. Current proof: our new hot forming steel BTR2000. It saves up to 15 percent in weight, is stronger than conventional hot-forming steel grades and can also be shaped. Our latest lightweight solution protects the environment and ensures safety in the vehicle.
The new hot forming steel BTR2000 from BENTELER Automotive helps to reduce weight by 10 to 15 percent. It is significantly stronger than conventional hot-forming steel grades but can also be easily formed. Thus, our lightweight solution protects the environment and at the same time ensures safety in the vehicle, especially in electrically driven vehicles. This latest innovation was developed in close cooperation with one of our customers.
Adiabatic punching is also part of the consistent further development of our hot forming expertise. This allows hot-formed components to be cut crack-free even when hardened. In addition to blank and hot cutting, some hot-formed products do not require expensive subsequent laser cutting. This saves time and money.
