Reducing weight with Superform’s high-strength 7000-series aluminium technologies

Superform has an extensive history of supplying high-strength, heat-treated 7000 series aluminium components to the aerospace industry. Many of these are structural components benefiting from a yield stress exceeding 400Mpa.

Recent process investments and tooling innovations have enabled Superform to form complex shapes using a variety of high-strength 7000-series alloys for automotive applications. The high yield strength of these alloys, combined with the ability to increase part stiffness through complex geometry, enables designers to reduce weight.

This technology is ideally suited to automotive structural applications and closure assemblies. Using Superform’s design expertise and working closely with our customers, significant weight reductions have been achieved whilst increasing structural integrity of their vehicles.
