Novel construction methods for the series-capable production of hybrid lightweight structures demand innovative tool technologies. The builder of models and molds Siebenwurst is developing suitable tool solutions for the large series-compatible production of intrinsically bonded hybrid structures in 3-D hybrid construction.

3-D Hybrid Technology

The automotive industry is constantly looking for new solutions to reduce vehicle weight. It is especially important to find intelligent construction methods in the bodywork structure so that they are not only lighter but can also be manufactured economically in large series-compatible volumes. From the classic pure steel construction of the past, hybrid constructions have increasingly become established in automotive building over the last few years. The intelligent combination of different materials such as aluminum, magnesium and steel means that their specific properties can be used in a more targeted manner, improving component performance...
