Lightweight construction

The automotive industry is in transition. The required reduction in CO2 emissions to improve air quality and to protect the environment leads to new demands in terms of lightweight automotive engineering.

Lightweight construction, as a synonym for weight or mass reduction in vehicles, represents one of the greatest challenges for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Jansen provides new possibilities incorporating high-tensile materials. The use of air hardening steel materials or materials suitable for tempering allows components to be lighter while maintaining their physical properties. Optimised engineering increases the production efficiency of tubes and cuts overall production costs (total cost reduction).
