New ideas for lightweight construction

KIRCHHOFF Automotive is presenting innovations for lightweight construction at the Automotive Engineering Expo (AEE) in Nuremberg on 4 and 5 June 2019. Decision-makers, planners and developers as well as designers and technicians from the automotive industry meet at this trade fair for a focused exchange on all aspects of body construction, body painting and final assembly.

The focus of KIRCHHOFF Automotive's appearance at the fair will be on crash safety, lightweight construction and cost-effectiveness. A highlight at the exhibition stand is the scalable battery housing in lightweight construction made of steel and aluminum for electrically powered vehicles. The main features of this cost-optimised design are an integrated cooling system and improved crash behavior. The exhibits also include a weight-optimised B-pillar. It makes it possible to economically implement lightweight construction for the series production of body components. Also at the KIRCHHOFF Automotive booth in Nuremberg: a cross beam made of high-strength aluminum in a shell design that can be adjusted very precisely to loads due to its special design. At the same time, the shell solution enables optimum use of the installation space.

The AEE is a knowledge and education platform for specialist engineers from the automotive and supplier industries. Leading OEM and OES experts have co-developed the extensive supporting program, which this year focuses on "With digital development and flexible production to new lightweight body structures".

KIRCHHOFF Automotive is exhibiting in Hall 12 at the joint stand no. 12-420 of the Automotive Center S├╝dwestfalen (acs). Come and visit us!
