An alliance for lightweight construction

Automotive supplier Bilstein & Siekermann and forming specialist HEATform join forces

The strategic cooperation between Bilstein & Siekermann GmbH + Co KG (Germany) and HEATform GmbH (Germany) promises completely new possibilities in the design and manufacture of structural parts for the automotive industry. HEATform's innovative forming technology for hollow bodies allows high degrees of forming and complex shapes of high-strength alloys in aluminum and steel. This opens up new design opportunities in terms of design, function, geometry and thus also for the weight of structural components. In combination with Bilstein & Siekermann's know-how and state-of-the-art production methods, this enables new approaches for the economical production of lightweight and rigid structural components in automotive engineering. It also opens up new possibilities in the development and production of electric cars.
