ATABHOT R&D Project
Advanced Tailored Blanks for hot forming
Baosteel Tailored Blanks S.r.l. gratefully acknowledge the support of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (project no. F/090044/00/X36) who co-funded the ATABHOT research and development program.
The innovation is related to a flexible laser welding process of different single components welded in one step with one welding line. The welding line is able to weld sheet metal parts of different material grades, thicknesses and coatings. The potential of this innovation is to reduce scrap, raw material, vehicle component weight, C02 emission, logistic costs, handling operations and number of designed components on a vehicle. The process avoids using process water and air emission on the atmosphere by using specific filter.
The end customer has the benefit to drive lighter and safer vehicles which consume less energy.
