When safety is paramount, aluminium is the ideal choice!
A central concern of today’s automotive industry is ensuring the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Crash management systems are integral in supporting this aim, and aluminium is an ideal material, given its lightweight properties, durability and stability. Investing in human capital, technological know-how and state-of-the-art equipment, and dedicated to quality and precision, Etem, a Key company of the aluminium segment of Viohalco delivers aluminium products for numerous automotive applications, including profiles for Crash Management Systems. Etem is certified for the production of crash relevant aluminum profiles and is an accredited Tier 2 and Tier1 Automotive supplier, making specific products exclusively for automotive industries and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Crash management systems are critical in making cars safer for all parties involved, such as the driver, passengers and pedestrians, in the event of a crash or accident. The lightweight properties of aluminium also contribute to reducing vehicle weight in the front and rear areas.
Crash relevant aluminum profiles and parts need to have high mechanical properties, such as static stiffness, combined with the highest energy absorption capacity. These parts need to absorb energy by controlled folding. For the automotive industry, this folding behavior is a key design criterion for mechanical process and component development.
