Cost-effective manufacturing for the flexible production of bearing structures.

As part of the research project ISB Elektro (incremental swivel bending) funded by BMWi, EDAG and its partners, the University of Siegen, ACS, Kirchhoff, Lewa and Kronenberg, developed an innovative roll formingprofiling and bending technology for future vehicle concepts. The result is a cost-effective means of manufacturing process for the flexible and variant-richintensive production of bearing structures. This opens up new and economical lightweight potential, particularly for small and medium volumes in particular, for instance fore.g. in eMobility or vehicle derivatives in the lightweight commercial vehicle sector.
